I am 22 years old and I gave birth in februaury . When I started breastfeeding I was taking the nor-qd birth control pills. I stopped breastfeeding now for two months and I had one normal menstrual cycle that lasted about 6 days. However this cycle is very unusual. I have been bleeding heavy now for a little over two weeks. I'm experienceing headaches, lower back ache, soreness in my lower abdomen. I also noticed that there is a foul odor to the blood and I am becoming more and more tired. My doctor wanted to start me on levlen, but I have never been on a two hormone birth control pill and I am extremely nervous about how my body will react. Do you think this could be just a hormone imbalance, or is it possible that somethin else could be going on?
