When I was thirteen I began taking Seasonique to combat my heavy and long menstrual periods and help with my acne. After taking the pills for six months, they stopped working and I had my period for over a month straight. I went ot the doctor and he told me to start taking two pills at a time. I followed his instructions and for another six months they worked. But eventually, that dose too stopped working. I again consulted my doctor and he claimed that he never advised me to double my dose. I am now 17 years old and have just recently been getting my periods regularly. My worst fear is that the excess birth control will have an affect on my ability to conceive children normally when I choose to do so. Please, if you have any information, help me.
Birth control pills don't change the fact that you have eggs. Once your hormones straighten out after taking them most women can get pregnant. I'm stuck on what the doc said. I know you didn't just double the dose without a doc saying you should, so then he says he didn't say it. However, he would have had to prescribe that, or you wouldn't have enough pills for the month.
