I have been taking ortho tri-cylen lo for about 6 months now and I'm concerned because my period lasts 3 weeks out of every pack, and ONLY stops with the first week of pills. Should I stop taking this pill and try another? Is this even Normal?
Dzoo has got it right! Ortho Tri Cyclen lo is exactly what it sounds like a low dose pill. The lower the dose of estorgen the higher risk of breakthrough bleesing, or bleeding when your not supposed to.
Higher amounts of estrogen will cause less bleeding. That beeing said - you should see your doctor. Explain to him/her whats going on. They should make sure nothing else is going on and that you aren't anemic.
