    Hello.
    As I mentioned in my previous posts I am having heavy periods. Too heavy where I need to change overnight pads every 3 hours continuously for at least two days. Then periods are continuing continuously till 9 days and lightly till 12 days


    After seeing gynecologist she gave me Haley 24 birth control pills.

    That relieved the heavy bleeding issue as the bleeding is manageable but after 2 months I was not able to go to pharmacy to pick up the medication so I thought I’ll just try to see how this month is. It was horrible with heavy heavy bleeding even till 6th day.
    With overnight pads.

    so my concern is I thought birth control was the solution to my issue. But what if for some reason I need to stop taking them. Bleeding so much when not taking them also is worrisome.

    Please share ur thoughts and suggestions.
    I do have a follow up with my gynaecologist.

    If your insurance offers a mail-order pharmacy benefit why don’t you switch to that? Your prescriptions will arrive right at your door.

    Follow your doctors instructions. Over thinking wont help. It take some time to fix your issue. I took it for the same issue for nearly eight months and stopped. You can take it for a few more months and check if stopping it will change your situation. Consult doctor if its not helping.

    If this is still true for the past 8 months, ask your doctor if the prescription needs some change - dosage or composition or brand....
    Also check if an IUD will work for you.
