I have been taking the same birth control pill for 14 years now. I had my annual with GYN earlier this month and mentioned I had about 3 month when I had breakthrough bleeding. She said this could be an indication my pill is not working. We decided if this happens again we will switch my birth control pill but in the meantime I'm a little paranoid because my youngest is 14 and I have no desire to get pregnant again. I'm thinking I may just switch to be safe but don't want to mess up my system because I've been on this same pill for 14 years. Any suggestions or others who had this happen?View Thread
