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.

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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 continue ...Read more

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. ...Read more

If a virgin takes contraceptive by mistake then the side effect vaginal bleeding can cause hymen breakage?
Why am I having vaginal bleeding a day after unprotected sex. No itch, burn, or smell. I been on birthcontrol for 3 months.
How long is it okay to spot bleed after a missed birth control pill? I missed my birth control pill for 3 days in a row, I have went back to taking it everyday at the same time but I am still bleeding vaginally and have been for 5 days.
You: You may bleed or spot for the rest of the pack. Once you miss three pills, you start to bleed from withdrawing the hormone, and starting the pills again will not reverse this effect. Continue to take the pills everyday and also use a back up method of contraception. Hopefully after your period this cycle, you will stop spotting, given you take the pills as directed. Have you considered the nuvaring? It is a great alternative for women who often forget to take their pills. Ask your doctor for more information. ...Read more

OCP's and bleeding: There are many reasons women will have dysfunctional bleeding. I am assuming they performed an ultrasound because they saw a cyst on your right ovary. The test would have identified fibroids or a polyp as well (that could explain dub). You may want to skip the placebo pills this month to see if you can get your bleeding under control. It can take 4-6 weeks to see the benefits of ocp's. ...Read more
