    Hey my friend has the same problem as you she has such bad cramps and always throws up, but she refuses to go on the pill because of sideeffects like cancer (i have explained its a tiny chance). I think you should just let it all come out lol, its not right to go back to back that long, I was told to only go 3 max. Finish your packet then just have a normal period. Maybe you could get pain killers for your periods? Or a stronger pill? xxxxx

    I guess your doctor just thought you should stay on the pill to avoid your horrible periods, but it doesn't sound like he gave you the best advice. Maybe it would be better to just skip a few, like only go on 3 at the most, and if the pain is still really bad when you do have one, try a different pill... sorry, not really much help, but maybe you really need to see another doctor who can advise you a little better than your last one.

    Are you asking how heavy break through bleeding is? Usually it's not at all as heavy as a normal period. The one time I got break through bleeding after taking 3 months in a row I only got a tiny smudge of blood every day. You probably won't get break through bleeding at all in the first pack you run on, especially not in the first week of the run on. You are supposed to consult with your doctor before doing stuff like that but heaps of women do it with no ill effects.
