Prolonged bleeding: "7 months of bleeding" needs to be evaluated by an exam, pelvic ultrasound and other testing. Oral bcp's if not taken very punctually will cause bleeding as the dose is so low that irregular ingestion of "the active pill" will cause irregular bleeding. Other causes such as fibroid tumors, polycystic ovarian disease, can cause prolonged bleeding. See a gyn physician for additional treatment.
