- Wedding: June 2010
Hello! Ok – so I have a question…any bees out there ever take the BCP “Mononessa” – the generic form of Ortho Tri Cyclen?
My doc switched me to this about 3 months ago from Ocella (generic of yasmin) – and well – not to be Too Much Information – but I’ve been having longer and longer periods – and growing up I’ve never really HAD issues with my cycle – up until the past year when I started having a short cycle in between my normal cycle (which could be due to the metformin and my low-carb diet) – but after starting this new pill – I’m also having loooong periods. example – I’m on day 7 right now and it’s still nice and heavy (sorry tmi, lol). normally I’m used to 4 maybe 5 days at most…
My doc and I already talked about me going OFF the pill right before the wedding – which is in June – but since I finished my last pack last week, I’m going off of them now. I’m not starting my next pack – and as far as baby-planning – we are taking all precautions until the wedding to make sure I don’t get pregnant before hand (although it wouldn’t be a horrible thing as we are trying immediately after – but obviously i want to party at my wedding! lol)
anywhooooooo – just curious if any bees out there have ever taken mononessa and what your side effects were. I totally get that not everyone has the same side effects, but i’m curious if anyone else has had this issue. thanks!!!
