Will Double Dose Of Birth Control Stop Vaginal Bleeding
Not likely!: Each tablet has a proportion of estrogen to progesterone. By taking a double dose you are still taking the same balance. Finding the cause of bleeding by ultrasound, examination or endometrial sampling is a better strategy. Pregnancy always need to be ruled out. Talk to your caregiver.See 1 more doctor answer

I fell down my stairs 13 days ago and have had vaginal bleeding ever since, is this normal? I'm on birth control too.
Bleeding: Needs to be evaluated by your doctor. Please see him/her so you can be checked for internal bleeding. Peace and good health.
Constant vaginal bleeding for a yr now, sometime clotty, perscribed birth control for it but not working, no pain, a bit over weight, what could it be?
A bit 'fluffy': Obesity can cause menstrual irregularity and prolonged bleeding due to the conversion of androstenedione to estrone from peripheral fat, an active estrogen that feeds messages back to the pituitary gland and the poor lining of the womb (endometrium) gets 'confused' and sheds inappropriately. Check with your md for alternative rx's since the oral contraceptive is not working. Weight loss helps.
May be normal: It is not clear what you mean by excessive vaginal bleeding - but it is quite common for the periods yo be heavier after stopping the pill than what you were experiencing while on the pill.
I recently started my birth control shot on December 11th. For the last three weeks I have experienced vaginal bleeding. Not a flow. I need advice.
Unpredictable: The bleeding patterns with depoprovera are unpredictable. You are right that for some in takes the period away. For others it causes irregular bleeding. There is no "normal" for Depo-Provera users. The longer you are on it the higher the chance of no periods. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud may be a better option for you if you want to avoid pregnancy and stop having periods.

I have had abnormal vaginal bleeding for 13 days straight after having normal 4-5 day cycles while on the birth control pill for 15 years. Concerned.
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very normal 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.
Had some light vaginal bleeding after having sex. On birth control, no sti's, no internal pain. Some light discomfort around bottom of labia minora.
A tear?: Maybe the tissue tore a little? Sometimes you'd be able to see this with a mirror. If it happens again, it would be a good idea to have an exam to see if there is something going on with the cervix.
26 year-old woman is unable to stop Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control pills after 8 yrs of use, due to heavy vaginal bleeding upon Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) discontinuation.....?
What are goals?: The answer depends on your long term goals. If you do not want more children then an endometrial ablation is a good option. Assuming you do want more children then other options can be considered. Testing for PCOS and hypothyroidism could be done. Since you are missing periods followed by heavy bleeding PCOS seems likely. A sonohystogram should be done to see if a polyp or submucosal fibroid is present. If present then these can be surgically removed as an outpatient. If pregnancy is desired later on but not now a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD could be a great option. This often stops bleeding. If you are satisfied with the pill you could just continueSee 9 more doctor answers
I had vaginal bleeding during sex, not on my period nor close to it, I was properly aroused and on oral birth control, what could be the reason?
Gyn exam: This could be bleeding from aggressive sexual intercourse- small rips or vaginal tears; however, bleeding after sexaul intercourse deserves further pelvic examination.

Pelvic pain: Vaginal bleeding and abdominal pain can be due to a number of different conditions. Pregnancy, especially an ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage can cause abnormal bleeding or pain. Other cause could be endometriosis, infectioni, as well as other conditions. It is important to see your physicain to be evaluated for this pain and bleeding.
Been having vaginal bleeding for 27 days straight what can be the cause? I'm on birth control, pregnancy test negative, waiting on sonogram results
Hormonal abnormality: The causes of dysfunctional uterine bleeding are either hormonal or structural (like a fibroid). At your age I would strongly suspect a hormonal problem and not a fibroid. The ultrasound will rule out (or in) the structural abnormality. Do you have PCOS? If the ultrasound is normal your doctor will likely run multiple tests to determine what the hormonal problem is.See 1 more doctor answer
On birth control but have still had abnormal vaginal bleeding for 10 months. Pap clear. Also have bloating, nausea and loss of appetite. What's wrong?
Menstrual cycles: It may be common have irregular cycles on birth control pills if you are very athletic, gain or lose weight, or have an eating disorder. You may also have a polyp on the cervix or inside the uterus that causes the bleeding. I would see your doctor if you notice that it continues to be irregular.
