I'm 28, got my period when I was 10. I've never been on contraception until this past year. Is it possible that it's just taking my body longer to adjust to hormones or does hormonal birth control simply not work for me? Will a higher dose estrogen contraceptive pill fix this breakthrough bleeding issue or will it clear it up on its own?
I know the benefit of preventing pregnancy right now in my life outweighs the bleeding but it's a major bummer to be experiencing this, seemingly, time after time regardless of switching pills.
I appreciate any help you can give. :-)
