The current birth control I am on allows for my period to last a full week... I'm sick of it. My MD just changed me to Yazmin (haven't started it yet). I am hoping it shortens up the period week for me! Please say it does!
You need to consult with your MD again hun, because they just recalled Yazmin. Check online for the statistics but alot of people were reporting similar complications with the drug. Just be well informed as to what you put in your body, and remember that you alone are in charge of your life and decisions made by a doctor... in dealing with your body and what rx to put in it or not... is always ultimately up to you, the patient. That's cool you joined in this site because there are truly some awesome people here. They all give pretty sound advice and there is never a "stupid" question, as I had felt at first. I feel at home now. You should consider other birth control options maybe... I've just seen alot of my friends go thru too much grief on some of these pill or shot/patch methods. I'll check the recall for ya too and try to holla at ya asap. ellie
I started using the pill because I suffered from painfull menstrual periods. I had the same issue with my period lasting 7 days when I started using them and that was why I switched to Yaz. My periods are now 3-4 days, light and painless. :) worked for me!! watch out for pain in your calfs and report to your OBG immediately.
