2 week menstrual bleeding
HeatherMarie08 posted:
Help!!! I am on the NuvaRing and my periods are usually normal. They happen on my week off from the ring. This time however, I started clotting and bleeding heavier the day I put it back in. Then a few days later it slowed down to spotting. Now I am clotting again and it has been over a week since my period was supposed to stop. I am having severe cramping again, which had slowed down for a few days while I was just spotting. What do I need to do? I am 24 and sexually active.

You need to see a doctor. It's unlikely that this extended bleeding is due to a menstual period.

I took my Nuva Ring out after doing some searching online. After that the cramps stopped and the bleeding has slowed almost completely down. I'm going to try and get an appointment and see if they can change my birth control. My body hasn't taken well to Depo or the pill so I guess it just doesn't like the ring either. lol

Well that helped for like a day. I'm back to bleeding with small clots, nothing large like it was. I'm looking online for a doctor in my area. I just moved so i have no clue where to look. Guess I will try and find the local health department and see if they can help me.
