Non-stop Bleeding

I've been bleeding for 12 days and then for one day there was nothing so I assumed it was over but now I've started bleeding heavily again - 2 days now (14 in total).

I stopped taking the pill 2 days after my period started (12 days ago) - is this something to be concerned about?

Stopping the Pill can interfere with your hormones. This is probably causing the bleeding.

Thanks Lou,

Forgot that when you go off the pill your hormones go crazy.

When you stop the pill it takes your hormones a while to stabilise. Try and see it through - if it gets unbearable you can go to your gp who can prescribe a tab to stop it. Perhaps take an iron supplement whilst you are bleeding to stop you becoming anaemic and feeling awful.
