I started taking birth control again, and I always had an irregular period, but I have been getting my period like eveything two weeks and it will be like my period, but for 3 days long, and heavier. I have taken the same birth Control before, And it was nothing like this before. On top of that I sleep more frequently and I'm always having lower back pain. But I havent gained any weight, and the pregnancy test always say negative, please help

Hi Anonymous,
Did you just start taking the birth control again? As in, is this your first or second month? It is common that your body needs to realign to taking birth control again since you stopped taking them for a while.

Talk to your doctor, but usually you have to wait a couple cycles before your body adjusts. I hope this helps.

Keep us posted,

Actually no, I stopped taking it for almost a year because I didn't have the money, but as of recently, as in almost 2-3 months now, all these symptoms started happening, and I thought maybe it wasn't because of my birth control. But I could be wrong...
