Periods and pills
Posted on: 10/12/2007
i have heavy periods which resulted to me being anemic and my doctor put me on pills. if i dont take the pills for a week or so i have none stop bleeding. is this normal and does this mean i have to takes these pills for the rest of my life?
You will not have to take the pills all of your life, as you age, your hormones change and they control your bleeding. It might be that you have to get your body on a cycle for a year or so, and then you can experiment with the doctor to see of the pills can be stopped, but for now, you need to stop bleeding so much! Good luck!
