I'm regularly taking Alesyna 28 (7 white pills) and ahve been taking is since Nov. 2013.
Recently, I doubled up on my pill packs in attempt to skip my period because I was going away on vacation and I didn't want to deal with the bleeding. I've done this in the past on this pill fine, and I also have done it okay on my previous brand of pill (Yaz) and was fine.
For whatever reason, this time around has no been as smooth. Since Mon. May 26 I've been bleeding. It's been light, but recently (the past 4 days) it's been enough that I have to wear a liner or pad and not just when I wipe.
I've read up that breakthrough bleeding when doubling up on packs is normal, but I'm concerned as to why I'm bleeding this much. I thought it would stop, but I've been bleeding for almost a week now and I'm starting to get a little concerned. Is my body just not taking well to the constant hormone dosage?
to clarify as well, I didn't want to stop taking the pills either because I didn't want my protection to be compromised. So I have been taking all active pills throughout. I also have been taking them at the same time everyday (I read that missing/skipping pills or taking them at different times could also cause breakthrough bleeding, but this is not the case)
I'd love to hear thoughts on this issue, if I'm okay, or if I should see my doctor/seek medical attention, or if I should stop taking the pills, let my body flush out, and start fresh as if I were just starting to take the birth control pill. (7 adys w/ extra protection ect.)
Thank you in advance!
