3 mnth menstruation

I recently got married i am 22. i am on the pill and now my period has been going for 3mnths, i have extensive cramps, I have been on antibiotics which i know cancels out the pill, and i have been on it on numerous occassions cos i get sick, and still have relations but never fallen preggies even tho i forget to take the pill. I went to the Gynae who sent me for scans(ultrasound) but everything looked normal it didnt show that i was on my period. I dont what is causing the bleedin but i have to use a tampon. Could it be endometriosis? if so can it be cured cos i do want children in the future

Endometriosis usually causes heavy periods,not continuous bleeding. Your bleeding may be a combination of forgetting to take the Pill and the antibiotics. Perhaps you need a different form of contraception.
