I've been on seasonique for 2 years now. During the last 2 packs of pills I have started to spot & almost have a light period for the last 3 weeks of the pack. Then I'd have a period so I ended up bleeding for a total of 4 weeks. I'm almost to that point in this next pack & then I have a doctors appointment. My question is this...I have some extra higher dose birth control pills. If I took those when I started to spot would it stop that from happening? I know this is a terrible reason but my boyfriend is going to be moving away towards the end up December. I really want to enjoy the last few weeks with him. I don't want to not be able to do anything because I'm bleeding for a month. I'm not sure my emotions can handle bleeding for a month and him moving away at the same time either. If anybody can give any insight I'd appreciate it.View Thread
Thank you for the reply. I have an appointment with my doctor the second week of December. My bf went home for the holiday so I ended up letting myself have a regular period. That is what I did the last time. I'm thinking maybe the dosage isn't strong for me so that's why I'm having the break thru bleeding. I know the last time I switched pills my doctor said my body had become used to them so I just needed to alter the dosage. Maybe the same thing is happening. I was switched to the seasonique due to severe migraines. The hope was that I would at least be able to avoid menstrual migraines since I get them during my period plus other random times. I really like the 4 period a year thing so I hate to switch back to having a period every month. One less migraine a month is a blessing. Thanks again!View Thread
