Experience

I was on this pill for 3 years and have bled constantly since. I’ve had scans at clinics to determine why I had constant irregular bleeding. I’d bleed for weeks and have maybe a days break and start again. Recently (maybe 4 weeks ago) I’ve decided to take myself off the pill to see how my body would react. Since then I’ve had no bleeding (I’ve been waiting 3 years for this break) I know they say irregular bleeding is normal but my god bleeding constantly for 3 years is a joke. I’m also on propranolol for constant migraines, I still get a few but since coming off the pill I’ve not had one
