Ok so.. my fiance have been together a little over a year and we are now in the financial situation to even consider having children. As we have been thinking of this almost since we met I stopped taking birth control. My only problem now is that i have been on my period for three weeks and counting it is a heavy flow.. Is this normal and how do i regulate this without going back on the pill.. or should i just suck it up and go to the doctors ... ? How long should we try before considering other options?
