I stopped this birth control 2 weeks ago cause I am sick of this and I didn't want to end up in er so this should be recalled or not prescribed at all or heck get rid of it like they did too yaz that called problems back than. I am glad I am quitting it. I only took it cause my menstrual was messed up from low thyroid problems and was on thyroid medication and obgyn thought this pill would get me lighter periods and not heavy ones but they were so wrong. I might just get another opinion. I am so sick of heavy periods want lighter to moderate not heavier!! Maybe I just live with pre menopause or whatever for all I care. Some doctors suck they don't care about any side effects for medication.
Sprintec - Why are they prescribing this if it causes heavier menstrual periods or bad blood clots?

I honestly never was heavier on one birth control long time ago that was for lighter periods I forgot the name of it. It was not yaz. Since I stayed away from that. I think was original ortho or some other one and birth control patch but I never had problems with heavier blots when I was 13 now I'm 27. But I could not stand getting paps smears they are harsh it hurts and I have to have no period to do it. It hurts my stomach and I get scared from it. I never had kids. I never had a boyfriend.I had not have unprotected sex. I am not pregnant either. Is there any other safe birth control or menstrual pill at all anymore I feel like there's not many options anymore. Only tests they can do but that scary and uncomfortable sometimes.

I think it weird I go from worry of not getting period than go on birth control than get it very super heavy from birth control and start complaining cause I want it light to moderate not heavier! It is crazy that Obgyn told me go to er but I did not, so I stopped birth control today and thinking well it will stop when I stop it so. I am not weak and I am moody on it anyways. Yes I am on another medication too Effexor xr doctor increase it it last week for headaches and moods but yet that's not working much. If period won't stop after quitting birth control than I will risk going er if I have to but I don't know want to do. My family thinks I am dying and I am like it from birth control cause heavier periods and sometimes clots.
