How long are your periods? on the birth control pill, they should only be like 3–5 days. If your periods are extra long, you should get a blood test for von willebrand’s disease (a bleeding disorder). If the reclipsen is not good for your acne, you can try a birth control pill with norgestimate. However, the one you are on is pretty good.

I agree that your doctor is not taking your concern seriously after 2 yrs! so perhaps time to find another doctor. also you should check your thyroid to make sure there is nothing going on there. and do you take your pill at the same time everyday? that is important.

It may be smart to check your thyroid to make sure there is nothing going on there. and do you take your pill at the same time everyday? that is important.

You can skip your periods altogether if you like. Just skip the sugar pills. usually you can get to 3 months with no periods and then you get some spotting. When you get spotting, come off the pills for 5 days (you’ll get your period) then go back on the 6th day regardless of being on or off your period. Each time you’ll go farther e.g. 1st time get to 3 months with no period, then 6 months, then 1 yr, then no more periods.
