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.
