not everyone who goes onto BCPs will bleed when they should

not all who go on it will stop bleeding

for some BCPs does nothing but make things worse then when you started

Like all drugs on the market, for some they works as they should for others they don't and still for others they do more harm then good.

and yes I tried them (5 years 24/7 bleeding and nothing would stop it, not a DnC not even a ablasion stopped it [only made the bleeding worse])

Yes, it can take a few months for your body to adjust to the pill. I wouldn't worry about it

Boycott, it can take a couple of months for your body to regulate on the pill. I took about 3 months. Now I can almost even predict the hour my period will start. If things haven't settled down by the 3rd full month, I talk to your doc about it to see if another BCP or other BC option might work a bit better.

I was just recently diagnosed with PCOS. I have had pretty regular cycles my whole life, but the last month or two I had issues that led to my eventual diagnosis. I was told to start taking BCP the Sunday after I started my next period. I bled on a Saturday and started taking the pill the next day. However, my bleeding stopped by Monday, so I don't know if I starting taking the pills at the right time or not. I just decided I had better keep going with them. It's been almost 3 weeks, and I'm due to start taking the sugar pills this Sunday (it's Thursday) and I just started bleeding.... Now I'm worried. Is it normal to take a month or 2 for the pills to start regulating the cycles or is there something wrong?
