I was finishing week 2 of my birth control pills, Ortho Cyclen, which I have been taking for almost 2 years. I skipped two pills and started a period. I took those two pills along with the pill I was supposed to take on that 3rd day but I still started a random period.
-Side note: About 6-8 months ago I accidentally skipped about 7 pills when I went on vacation and just doubled up each day to catch up and never even started a period then!!
I talked to a pharmacist, and then continued to take the rest of the pills. At the end of the 3rd week, instead of starting the placebo pills, I started a new pack, in hopes to end my period. I am now going on my 13th day of this period, with no hopes to ever stop bleeding! The period is very light now but still continues. Before all this happened I was completely regular, to a tee.

WHAT DO I DO!?!? I'm a psychotic hormonal mess and have been for the past 13 days! Please give me a light at the end of this crazy person tunnel!!

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for submitting your question and I am certainly sorry to hear your a hormonal mess. We all hate that feeling. If you still are currently bleeding, I would consult your physician. A doctor would need to physically exam you for possibilities for your continuous period and also can help you stop your period as well.

Please keep us updated on your condition.
