cerazette (mini pill) will i be on a period forever?! watch

    • Thread Starter

    I originally went on cerazette (the mini pill) to reduce my heavy periods and i had heard that it possibly stop them all together which would be an added bonus. I have been on the mini pill for 4 months now and for the past month (30 whole days) i have been on a period! It started off light.. like spotting and has gotten a little bit heavier. I don't know what to do! i went on this pill in order to have more sex and now i cant because im on my period for over four weeks! I have heard that it takes a while for your body to adjust to cerazette and it could take 6 months before everything settles. Has anyone else had this problem? How long should i wait before i go to the doctors? does this mean 6 months of being on a period?!
    Thanks for your help

    I think progesterone only methods can do that quite often. Change your pill to the combined pill, maybe, unless you can't have oestrogen?

    I'm on Cerazette and I've had two periods in the past year. It took a while for it to settle, but after about a month and a half I was free of blood. Although having said that, I was on my period a few years ago for about three months. It might just be your body settling.

    I have had a similar experience. I've been on cerazette for 3 months almost. the first two months i was almost constantly on my period, which has made me anaemic (don't let this happen to you, it is really rubbish and takes ages to get back to normal). I was going to switch to combined when suddenly the bleeding stopped, so i decided to give cerazette one last chance. i have had a couple of weeks period free, fingers crossed it will carry on this way, but i dont know.
    my advice: don't wait until you become anaemic to go to the doctors.
