Dr Owen :

Hello

Customer:

Hello Dr. Owen nice to meet you

Dr Owen :

hi

Dr Owen :

No, you do NOT need to be concerned

Customer:

Okay, when will this stop?

Dr Owen :

Your body can take bout 1 to 2 months to get used to a new birth control so this is quite normal to have some spotting of blood

Dr Owen :

So not a concern

Dr Owen :

Usually the bleeding will stop after a week or two

Customer:

Two months! Can I do something to help it stop?

Customer:

is there a point I should be worried?

Dr Owen :

Usually 1 to 2 weeks of spotting - that is all

Dr Owen :

the 1 to 2 months is for your body to get use to this

Dr Owen :

there really is nothing to worry about

Dr Owen :

To HELP with the spotting - sometimes taking an over the counter product such as Ibuprofen can help

Dr Owen :

You might want to try a Prescription to Lysteda (also known as Transexamic acid)
