Yeah that's right. Sigh. Yesterday marked the 3 week anniversary of my period. I don't understand why it's being like this. I'm getting frustrated and I think it may have something to do with my pills. I skipped my last 2 periods on purpose for different reasons and now I'm non-stop bleeding. Yum, eh? Do I go to a doctor or wait until next week when I'm actually supposed to have it and see if it ends after that?

Have you been bleeding heavily or just non-stop spotting and light bleeding?

Obviously, we don't recommend skipping your period on purpose. It's generally not something most doctors suggest for a variety of reasons. If you are taking birth control, it's best to take them as directed to avoid mishaps and messed up cycles.

It's been heavy the last 5 days or so but before that it'd be enough to fill a tampon every day. Ugh. The cramps are what's bothering me more than anything.
