Hi! I have PCOS and I just recently started taking my birth control pills (Norethindrone) for the first time on Jan 12, on the same day my period began. I took them regularly for a bit and noticed that I had a lot more blood clots/ uterine lining during my period than I usually did without the birth control. On Jan 16th, I took my birth control, but that night I left for college and accidentally forgot my medication. I was unable to get my medication back for four days. During this time off my pill, I experienced the most excessive bleeding I have ever experienced. I had a lot of cramps (I usually don't get menstrual cramps) and had to take meds because it hurt so much. I also had a lot of blood clots during this time. I had to use the large overnight pads and change them every 2-3 hours, something I was not used to doing. On the fifth day (Jan 20th) I was able to get back on my birth control pills and I took 2 of them on the 20th, and then continued 1 a day. Today is Jan 30th, and I'm still bleeding, but a little less and in weird times of the day. From about 11am-6pm I bleed normally and then at night nothing happens. I also noticed that my blood clots are still there, and I feel like they're getting bigger sometimes. I can't tell if something is wrong with me - I know there can be a lot of irregularities, what with me having PCOS and everything, but I would appreciate any help! I am 19 a y/o.
