Hi
JA: Hi. How can I help?
Customer: I need to speak to gynaecologist
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: I am on mini pill
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I am having unusual vagina bleeding
JA: How long have you been dealing with the issue? In general, how has your health been lately?
Customer: I am ok but bleeding for 20 days now

Since when are you on the mini pill?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Its 6 months now

This can be the adverse effect of the mini pill which may happen even after six months. The other causes for vaginal bleeding are;

1) Vaginitis; infection of the vagina. Usually, some form of vaginal discharge accompanies or symptoms like vaginal pain during sex or itching associated.

2) Uterine fibroid

3) Uterine polyps

4) Endocervical polyp

5) Pelvic inflammatory disease

6) Cervicitis (cervix infection)

7) Endometritis; infection of the internal lining of the uterus

8) Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)

9) Fluctuating hormone levels.

The following can detect/diagnose the cause;

1) A physical examination and speculum examination by the doctor

2) Ultrasound

3) Blood work for the hormones

4) Vaginal swab

I wish your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need any more information.

They did not explain to me how to take pill it looks like I messed with my system I don't know what to do let the period finish on there own or should I start taking pill again

Mini pills are taken regularly and not stopped. You get the period while taking the pill.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.

Period won't be stopped. It would come every 28 days.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Between period I still take pill

You should keep taking it during the period as well.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Now how can I stop this unusual bleeding can u help with this its annoying

You may stop all medicine/mini pill. Wait for 1-2 weeks by which the bleeding would stop.

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Its getting worse not stopping at all nearly 22 days now its heavy aswel clots r coming nd don't have severe pain but pain in stomach I want them.to stop without any medication and u sure they will stop after 2 weeks

Yes, in two weeks your body hormones would settle on their own and stop bleeding.
