I've had my period for a month!
An_251191 posted:
I started what I thought was my period 3/6. That same day I started my birth control as instructed by my doctor. My period stopped the next day aandthen started again 3/8. It was heavy bleeding up until 3/23. Directly following my period I have had a lots of brown discharge sometimes with blood in it sometimes without. My doctor said not too worry about it, that it was caused by the birth control. So, I took it upon myself to stop taking it 3/26. I started my period again 3/29. This has never happen to me before. My period is usual regular. And birth control has never caused such changes to my body. What is going on. Please help!
