I was on Aviane for about 8 months. I would start bleeding on the second week of my pills. Not spotting, BLEEDing enough to go through a box of tampons in 3 days. I lightly bled all the way through the pack of pills and by the time I got to the placebo week, I didnt have much blood left to bleed.The problem got worse each month and I quit.
Its been about 2 weeks and my belly has blown up to a freakish size - I look pregnant! and no, Im not.
is this a common side effect with stopping birth control pills? Its kind of funny, but its kind of freakish too.
