I went on the Pill (Levlen) in early December. A few days later I ended up on Doxycycline (antibiotics) for a sinus infection and I was dreadful at taking the Pill on time for the first 10 or so days (it's been 2 years since I was on the Pill so that's my excuse). Anyway, it seems I managed to induce ovulation (grrr!!!) and although I planned to take the Pill continuously for 2 or so months (like I've been doing for years in the past) I ended up with break thru bleeding 9 - 10 days ago. It's STILL an issue. I kept taking the Pill as I vaguely recall a similar situation in the past and my GP at the time told me to just keep taking the Pill. BUT, it's now been 9 - 10 days and I've still got bleeding that will be nothing much for most of the day and then will be a gush of fresh blood (sorry for TMI) and then nothing much again for hours. I haven't made an appt with the GP as I just kept expecting it to stop.
I'm not pregnant (checked yesterday) and now I'm not sure what to do. The irony is that I specifically went back on the Pill in early December so I could not have AF for these 2 - 3 weeks while I'm on holidays so I could easily take the kids swimming and it's been a major fail & disappointment on that score!! Now, I'm not sure if I should give up & go off the Pill (onto sugar pills) for a week and have a 'proper' period or if I should persist with taking the Pill and my bleeding might stop in the next few days. I really want to go swimming later this week and it's hard enough to manage with 2 little kids without having to worry about the logistics of AF & swimming.
