bleeding while on the pill

I dont know if anyone can help me with this... I had my daughter almost 5 years ago and my body has not been the same since... I cant seem to find a birth control that works with my body, I've tried 4 different kinds and I just bleed constantly there is only about 4-7 days out of the month that I'm not, I understand there may be some breakthru bleeding but this is like a regular period all the time and it's extremely painful, so I quit taking it, and then recently started taking Loestrin 24 again because I have been going 3-4 months without having a period at all

Hi there! Sorry you are having so much trouble. It sounds like the pill isnt working for you. Listen to your body. Why do you want to be on the pill?

Has your doctor addressed why you have such infrequent periods? What were your cycles like before starting the pill? Have you had your hormones checked?
