Out of control bleeding when stops birth control, even irregular bleeding on birth control


Q: Good day when I was 14 I had my period constantly for 6 months, i went to the doctor and he put me on the birth control pill triphasil he said that I should use ut for a month and then stop and see if my period is normal. i stpped taking the pill and 2 days after that I started bleeding again. Its been 7 years now and i tried the injection to see if it works but my hormones and bleeding went wild while on the injection. Ive been on triphasil for 2 years again now and while on my white pills between periods I start bleeding again. Im really worried espesially now. Im married almost 4 years now and want to have a baby but Im so scared and confused at what this might be and if i will be able to have children. I want to go for a pap smear but this constant bleeding,prevents me from getting answers. Can you please help me and give me some answers to what you think this is.


A:   You have been suffering from irregular menstrual cycles with irregular hormonal intake, which resulted in imbalance of hormones in your body. Since you wanted to get pregnant, various hormonal levels, especially FSH anf LH must be assayed. Many times medical treatment works in the condition unless you have any physical lesions which hinder pregnancy. A detailed workup with various investigation along with examination of your partner must be done, to evaluate chances of fertility in detail. Assisted reproduction techniques help in physical conditions, which hinder pregnancy, otherwise medication can be helpful. Consult a gynecologist along with your partner to be evaluated for infertility and get started with appropriate treatment.
