Double Up On Birth Control To Stop Bleeding
Can I double up on my Yasminelle birth control to stop a 10 day non-stop Breakthrough bleeding? I have been on BcP's for only a month by the way.
I would stay: With the daily pills and allow your body to acclimate to the new hormones you are ingesting. Taking double doses haphazardly usually will not staunch the bleeding immediately, especially if you take twice the dose of a blank or placebo pill. Stick with the schedule to let the body slowly adheres. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

Not likely!: Each tablet has a proportion of estrogen to progesterone. By taking a double dose you are still taking the same balance.

Ok I have pcos and haven't stopped bleeding is there anything besides birth control to stop the bleeding? I can't afford a doctor and was curious
See a doctor please: I totally sympathize if cash is tight, but you are playing with fire: see a doctor! Most women with pcos have irregular bleeding and many causes are benign, but some are pre-cancerous and can even be cancer itself. Do yourself a favor and see a doctor in the office; the internet is not a good place to troubleshoot this. ...Read more

I started continuous birth control 7 weeks ago now have breakthru bleeding, dr wants me to double up for 5 days.....is this ok....I'm scared to double?
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more
Depends: It may be an issue of too low a dose of birth control or the timing of initiating them that could be the problem. I would follow up with your doctor to see if this is the case before stopping or changing them. If you have just started birth control there may be some initial breakthrough bleeding as well-usually not a concern. If this persists of course follow up with your doctor. ...Read more
Call your gyn: It is better to go until the end of the pack if it is not heavy and often times your gyn can add some low dose hormones for a short time or switch u to a different pill, it is very common to have some the first 1-2 months and usually it resolves by the 3rd month, u may need a stronger pill if u want to stay on them please discuss with your gyn. ...Read more
Just started taking birth control (aviane) and after 9 days used I have bleeding, did I stop used the tablets or what did I do.
Keep taking them: When I prescribe birth control pills I explain to patients that if they start them right away, they will have unscheduled bleeding during the first pack. If you start just after your period this is less likely. Keep taking them and use a back-up method of birth control (abstinence, condoms, etc) until you're on the second pack. ...Read more
Been having break through bleeding for almost three weeks of starting birth control micrognon for the first time.. how can I make it stop?
Change birth control: It may take a woman's body time to adjust to a new birth control method, and if you are not bleeding heavily it is safe for you to continue the Micrognon another month. However, you may need a different combination of hormones to prevent the breakthrough bleeding. You should contact the provider who prescribed the Micrognon and discuss your options. ...Read more
I missed a few days of my birth control and now I can't stop bleeding, what should I do? Okay so I kind of forget to take my birth control sometimes and after the third day I forget it, it makes me start bleeding. And that lasts about 4 days. But this tim
First of all, if you have missed more than 3 pills, then you will need to throw the rest of the pack away, wait for your period to start and begin a new pack of birth control pills from day 1.
Also, anytime you miss a pill, the effectiveness of the pill decreases, putting you at risk for pregnancy. You will need to use a back up method of birth control (condoms, spermicide) for atleast 7 days.
Once your body adjusts to the hormone levels, your bleeding should subside.
Taking 4 birth control pills at once is dangerous and can have substantial side effects on your body such as nausea, breakthrough bleeding, cramping, etc.
If you find that you forget to take your birth control pill, consider other methods that don't require you to remember a daily pill such as injections, patches and implantable hormones.
Talk to your doctor to determine what is best for you. ...Read more
