Experience

I was put on this pill because I have a large fibroid that had dislodged my coil. My moods, sex drive have been fine but 2.5 weeks into taking this pill I started what I thought was a normal period, that was 4 weeks ago and I haven’t stopped bleeding since. I’m fatigued, and I’ve got cramps and sharp pains all the time. It’s been awful and my GP has been totally useless and unsympathetic. He’s now told me to stop taking it to see if I stop bleeding without any further advice as to how long I should leave it, no help with possible anemia, pregnancy control or the pain I’m in.
