Patient :I'm 14 years old and I am sexually active. I went to planned parenthood and got birth control, but because of my chronic migraines I have to take PoPs birth control pills instead of the general pill. The doctor warned me about bleeding between periods. In the begging I missed my period by 3 weeks after I had had sex and did not use a condum. I was very worried that I might have been pregnant because I also noticed some weight gain (another side effect). So freaked out I went to my local store to purchase a pregnancy test and when I went to take it I noticed I had started my period. I was releaved! But now I have been on my period for 12 days when they used to only last 3-5 days. It's not just light bleeding either... It's heavy and varies in color and consistency. I'm mostly wondering if there is something seriously wrong with me and weather or not I should see a doctor.
