    Menstrual Issues

    Hello all. Ive been having issues with my menstrual cycle, pretty much, ever since I started having them. It straightened out when I hit my late teens and then about 6 or 7 years ago it started getting bad again. I couldnt keep track of my periods (it would just start out of no where with no signs or symptoms) and it would last 2-3 weeks. I actually had a few that lasted for 4 weeks. I saw my GP about it and she put me on birth control to straighten it out. It seemed to work for a while, but then I started having "break through bleedings" (Bleeding while your taking the pill and not supposed to bleed). We tried a different pill and that worked for a bit and then it didnt so we tried another pill and that worked, but then it didnt so the doc started upping the dose. I was on a high dose of sprintec and I still started bleeding through. I went to a regular gyno and she put me on the lo-lorestin pill and said it would work and this was the best pill she has worked with. I havent even been on it a year and I had a "break through bleeding" last month and then another at the beginning of this month (October). It started off as spotting, but has worked up into regular bleeding. The current week is my "period week". After this week I will have been bleeding for about 3 weeks. Ive been taking this pill religiously! The same time every day! Im so sick of this problem! Ive never had bad PAP test results and Ive even had external and internal ultrasounds and nothing was found. What do I do? I want this problem to end because its making me sick.
