I started taking seasonique and 3 weeks into the pack I started spotting. By day 13 of constant spotting I noticed the bleeding got heavier by the day so I made the decision to stop taking it since I only started taking it to control my periods and have less periods. As soon as I stopped the bleeding worsened and started passing huge clots. On day 15 I passed what looked to be a huge piece of raw meat (white and dark red spots) looking tissue. I freaked out of course. Since then I still am having a constant flow that doesn't seem to be getting any lighter but the blood is getting fresher. The bleeding won't stop and the cramps and bloating is the worst. I'm taking 3 to 4 ibuprofen a every 3 hours for the pain. Anyone please help, when will this end of is there a way to stop it? I feel I'm losing way too much blood and the pain isn't helping!
I too stopped recently and I am having the exact same experience you are having. It's hormonal withdrawal. I hope you went to see your doctor because it can lead to anemia. I will be calling my doctor. This definitely messes with the sex life. I definitely will not be taking birth control for a while. I have tried it all and have experience constant bleeding.
I also have had the same issue. I called into my dr to explain what was happening. She said to stay on the pill. I refuse to do so because I have had the worst cramping of my life and the period is so heaving. It’s been a week since I stopped and seems the period is getting heavier. How long did it take for your period to stop?
