I started back on Desogen BC pills last month after being off of them for about 2 years.  Prior to this break I'd been on this pill for about 15 years.  My first period since starting this pill has been going on now for 12 days and is still fairly heavy.  Any one else run in to something like this?  When will it slow/stop?  Should I consult my Dr.?  Please help! Thank you! 


deciding to be happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect, but that you had decided to look beyond the imp

Hi! I'm sorry I haven't gotten by sooner. How are you now? Has the bleeding stopped? Since you've been bleeding for awhile, it's always good to check in with your doctor. Just to make sure everything is ok.
