    *before i get yelled at by the mods and various others, i realise that there have been a lot of threads along the lines of this subject recently and i have trawled through them all looking but none have had advice on my particular problem.*

    Im on the pill - Ovranette - and have run about 5 packs together for various reasons. When ive done this before ive never had any problems, but suddenly today i started to get fairly heavy breakthrough bleeding. Since the reason i ran this pack on is cos im sitting exams at the mo this is really not good.

    i know there are some other people on here who continuously run packs together so i was wondering if this ever happens to you? and how long it might last? :confused:

    i know some people might just say put up with it and sit your exams but my periods are excrutiatingly painful to the extent of throwing up and passing out - hence the running the packs on together, ive already got the begininnig of the cramps. not particularly good for revision!

    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I don't think it's safe to run more than 3 packs together.

    Basically, you've now been stimulating your body to build and maintain the uterine lining for 5 months. It's used to shedding it every month. By now there'll probably be a lot of old cells which are dying and no amount of hormones can keep them from shedding now. You're not really meant to run more than three packs together but that's a bit late to say that now. Keep taking them and take ibuprofen/mefenamic acid if you've been prescribed it (and if not, worth seeing your doctor to see if you can get it). And DON'T run on another pack.

    yep - ive got the mefanamic acid and it does help take the edge off!

    the thing is it was my doctor who recommended running all my packs together. ive been back since and he said just to keep going with it. he doesnt seem the most clued up on girly stuff though?

    generally this happens. you can medically get away with 3 periods a year but like your situation your under alot of stress and the hormones your producing will affect the hormones in the pill. i'm sorry but it looks like your gunne have to stick with this one. for the cramps try exercise i know it's the last thing you wana do but believe me it helps. or try feminax i swear by the stuff

    Yes. I asked my doctor that when I first started taking the pill years ago and she said it was fine. Just don't run too many packs together.

    I have a similar problem from a slightly different angle.

    When I was younger, I was on microgynon for medical reasons (three month period) with no side effects. I’ve just started taking it again, and my first period has now lasted for two weeks with no sign of stopping. It’s a constant light flow, and there’s no pain, so it’s fine, but I’m starting to worry because I’m going on holiday soon. A nurse told me not to worry yet, that if it carried on through the second pack, then we’d just change it, but we’d have to wait till the second pack to really know. I’m just a little worried because of the problems I had before, and was looking for some reassurance. I wonder if anyone else had had similar adjustment problems?

OMG!!!! what happened to me, i was on Cilest and i ran 2 -3 packs together, i got 'breakthrough bleeds' unexpected pds even though i was on the pill all the time- i guess its gotta come out sometime!! but after the end of the 3rd pack when i tok the break, my pd was heavy and hurty and i felt to die. i think if your pds are that bad even on the pill that you must see the doc

    i phoned up the docs earlier to make an appointment, and asked to see a female doc as i figured they might understand a little more. but the recepcionist sp told me that the only female doc is away on maternity leave and that they were very busy at the mo. she gave me a choice of two doctors (i cant even see my regular doc cos hes on holiday).
    one is really old and nasty - i went to see him when i got my foot smashed with a hockey stick full force, he told me the pain couldnt be that bad and no he wouldnt give me a note to get off games and pe, later went to the emergency room after passing out to find i had broken three bones and had to have a cast!
    the other option ive never seen before so said yeah and then she goes their may be a supervisor in with him as he is newly qualified and sometimes his accent is a little hard to understand!

    so god knows what he ll say. was everyone else given advice about the maximum to run together then? mine just said to keep going.

    Couldn't you go to a youth clinic? My friends and I go there a lot for pill related stuff, because they provide Doctors who are trained to deal specially with young people. Also, it's easy to get to. Not sure where to find out if there's one near you, but maybe you know of one already.

    Hey,
    when i go to the doctors i normally see a nurse, why dont u phone back up and ask to see her, most doctors normally hav one for family planning n all that. i know wot u mean bout moron doctors tho, mine is really religious, and shouted at me for having sex before marriage! lol
    oh and i got told not to carry on the pill for more than 3 months coz all ure lining builds up and makes you feel sluggish and emotional.
    i have mefanamic acid too it really helps.

    Are your periods that painful because you run the packs together?

    well if you think that loads of dead cells and extra lining are just sitting up there, you can imagine that the uterus is trying to work a lot harder to expel it all..so yeah, it does tend to hurt more than your average period.

    but five packs is ridiculous to have run together really. Your doctor was way out of line to be advising you to keep going without a break - especially when there's no really good reason why you oughtn't to be having a period.
    I concur.

    You don't want to get endometriosis. If it's meant to come out, let it.

    sorry to interupt as im a guy but can i ask when you pass out do you get panicky or scared? Its just ive done it a few times and its like a nightmare.

    About your situation if you are worried about being in pain etc during exams then resit them you can get evidence saying you were ill. You shouldnt have to put up with it your probably under enough stress as it is.
    Other than that just stick with the pain killers

    so im at risk from something like that? :eek: boy do i love my doctor!


    my periods have always been really painful from the start and its just got worse over the years. all ive ever been told is that the pain shouldnt really be enough to stop me doing anything (cept it is) and to try and get on with it. I got sent home from work tonite after throwing up and having dizzy spells from the pain.

    passing out is not something i find fun, i get really disorientated when i come around and tend to hyperventilate and freak out. Why have you been passing out?

    I doubt you are really at risk of that but whether it's ok to run packs of the pill together depends on the type of pill you are taking. You really need to go to a doctor IMMEDIATELY and ask about your specific type of the pill and the problems you have been having. It might be best to see a different doctor just so you can get a 2nd opinion on the advice your family doc gave you about running packs togther.

    A gynaecologist who shouted at you for having sex before marriage!!! :eek: :mad: Well, I bet he scares away a lot of his patients doing that. Hell, i could never see a male gynaecologist, would freak me out totally.
