I am twenty three years old and began menstruating at the age of twelve. My periods have always been regular but this month for the first time I am having a prolonged period for more than 14 days. Ultra sound ruled out other complications and now my doctor is suggesting that I use Yaz.I have never used a contraceptive in my life and would not like to begin now. I also know of the complications with Yaz and have refused it.
Is there an alternative to contraception? What is a low dose contraceptive that I may use ? if I choose a contraceptive how long do I use it, can I only take one months supply.View Thread
