I took the pill on the 13th of march, I started bleeding on the 21st. I am still bleeding I was just wondering if anyone experienced the same issue how long was it before they stopped bleeding. I am still taking my regular birth control which is Generess. this is a birth control that usually stops unusual bleeding but this doesnt look like it is ever going to stop. It was clots in the beginning. then it got really dark close to brown and light, so I thought it was about to go off. Now it is like its just coming on again. I hope that makes since.

Hello misunderstood,
Why did you take Next Choice if you are taking Generess? Did you miss a dose of Generess and used Next Choice following unprotected sex?

In doing some research to answer your question, since I never experienced this issue, I did find that heavy vaginal bleeding is a side effect of Generess and changes to the menstrual cycle, such as heavier or lighter menstrual flow, are a side effect of Next Choice.

Logically, combining the two medications disrupted your normal menstrual cycle and is most likely the cause of the prolonged,heavy menstrual flow.

I suggest that you call your physician and report your symptoms. Your doctor can best advise you on how long the bleeding will last and what should be done.
