Growing up I would have a period for 1 month and then it won't come back until 2- 4 months later. A doctor recommended birth control and for 3 years every month I'll have my period for 2 full weeks. I've switched medication 3 times (from higher to lower doses and different brands) and it's the same story. Is this normal? Should I stop taking birth control? I went to a Gynecologist and she said that with the new birth control (lower dose) it is normal to not have a period while taking it but that only happened once when I started it. Then it went back to normal.
Hi! Irregular periods are normal in our teen years, but usually stabilize over a couple of years or less. My question would be are you on birth control for contraceptive reasons or other benefits? I think our bodies just work better when we have a monthly cycle. My advice to you is if you are using birth control just for pregnancy prevention look into other alternatives. There's so much on the market for other things that birth control helps. Maybe a second opinion wouldn't hurt?
