Expert:  Dr Basu replied 10 months ago.
Thanks for your information.You are likely having problems with the hormone composition of the pill.You need more gestodene or progestin to stop the bleeding.This can occur even in normal women.Irregular bleeding can be caused by the excess androgen in the body as well.You can double up your pills for next one week.Or you can get a separate progestin prescription from your GP.

Do you mean take 2 pills in one day?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 10 months ago.
That is correct
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Will that stop the bleeding?

Yes it will in most cases. Best wishes

I feel like I have really bad cramp and have heavy bleeding, this hs never happened before on pill why now? Do I need a different pill?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I can find any info online abou taking 2 pills per day
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 10 months ago.
This can happen even on current pill --does not mean it is not working.Hormone imbalance causes this.Only way to stop the bleeding will be to constrict the bleeding blood vessels in the uterus lining.That is achieved with higher dose of progestin.The common practice is to increase the dose of same pill you are on since you are tolerating them well.You cannot find it online unless you are looking into clinical practice guidelines. Best wishes,

Ok how many days should it take to stop bleeding ? Should I speak to doctor and get a different pill ?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Are there any pills that stop bleeding completely ? Thanks
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Why cause la hormone imbalance when everything has been fine up till now
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 10 months ago.
You should continue for 10 days.You should speak to your doctor also.The pill should be changed if bleeding does not stop by then.Yes Medroxyprogesterone acetate can be used 10 mg twice daily for faster action. The imbalance can occur from lack of coordination between ovaries, adrenal glands and pituitary gland in the brain.Stress also can contribute to the imbalance.This is a temporary issue usually.Best wishes
