I've been on HBC for about 4 years or so, since I was diagnosed with PCOS. The first pill I took resulted in a 60 day heavy period (I'd spend days out of school it'd be so bad. Yuck!) After some extra pill taking (I took progesterone to make it stop...they were circular and pink, that's all I remember!)
So I got on a really good HBC and it worked for about 3 years, and then I started breakthrough bleeding for more than a month, though I was taking it at the same time every day - sometimes two, and it wouldn't work. After frustrating weeks with the doctor, I got under an OBGYN, and she put me on another pill.
This pill worked well for several weeks, but then the same thing happened. I took two, nothing changed. I called her again and I was put on another pill.
Again, this pill worked fine for a while, but now I'm breakthrough bleeding - only now it's more like a period flow. I'm getting really frustrated with this; does anyone know of a really good HBC that might help me?
