This one is more for those of you that has been on the BCP. It's been a few years since I have, but I'm back on it now and have been for about 4 months now. I have been taking it every day, at bedtime each night and haven't missed any. However, for the past 3 weeks I've noticed I've been bleeding every day. Sometimes it's like spotting and other time it's heavy for a few hours like AF. I've also been cramping off and on. The cramps seem to come if I've been sitting/lying down and go to move or get up. They only last about 3 or so minutes but they're really painful were I have to bend over or push on my lower stomach to try help the pain. I've also been very tired the past few weeks too. I've been going to bed at 10pm each night and getting up for work at 7.15am so I'm getting plenty of sleep. But by 7.30pm each night I'm falling asleep on the couch. My skin is also really bad, especially around my mouth and chin area - not nice to have in your mid 20s.
I'll be seeing my doctor in Tuesday about this but just wondered if any of you have experienced this before?
