is there anything i can do to make my bleeding stop for a short period of time or stall it? i have to wait quite a while until i can get to the gyn & i was wondering if there is anything i can do to make the bleeding stop for a while bc i am 17 & it has been making me very tired & out of energy.
According to the data you provided, the heavy bleeding you experience might be caused by hormonal imbalance caused by the birth control pills. No suggestion can be given how to stop the heavy bleeding without medications. The fatigue you experience might be related to anemia caused by the excessive blood loss. You might want to drink more fluids to compensate for the blood loss.
Visiting a gynecologist is highly recommended. Pelvic exam and hormone laboratory tests might be needed and adequate treatment might be recommended.
