Hello, has anyone experienced non stop bleeding from Yaz. I took it 3 days before my period was going to start about a month ago and have been bleeding non stop!!! It has cleared my skin and i no longer suffer from pmdd so i dont want to stop it. But all this bleeding is getting to be too much!!!!!
I was on Yaz. Yes, the bleeding is a part of it. I think it is the way the body is flushing out the old blood. If it is your first time, it will take longer. Mine was more than three weeks. It was on my fourth pack that it stopped. Don't you experience migraines? I did so I stopped taking it. Now I am anxious because my period has not been coming.
Irregular bleeding is the most common side effect of birth control pills. It is especially common during the first three months as your body adjusts to the hormones in the medication. Do not stop taking the pill. The problem will usually go away. If it does not go away, check with your healthcare provider.
What you are experiencing is called breakthrough bleeding. It happens because your uterus lining thickens with blood rich tissue, and due to the hormones it does not go down. It is a fairly common side effect from birth control,
If it does not go away when you start your next pack, talk to your doctor. It is fairly easy to stop by prescribing a different hormone or changing how you take it for a short period of time. Often it will just resolve itself after a while.
