Bleeding heavily with clots after sex after taking P.O.P pill. Is this normal?

Hi, I have been taking the P.O.P pill for 3 months and have had bleeding throughout, I understand it is common. I am 46 and was put on this pill to reduce heavy prolonged bleeding and inter period bleeding. The bleeding subsides slightly and then starts heavily like a period with clots after intercourse. I am concerned and will see my GP when I return to the UK but am at present abroad without access to a doctor and I am worried, is this relativly normal? The pill is Cerezette I take it at the same time every day, I have taken it for 2 months and 2 weeks.

hello and welcome,

It is unusual to have heavy bleeding after cerazette. You are also having postcoital bleed. Hence another cause for the bleeding must be ruled out like fibroids, hormonal disturbances, cervical polyps.

Better see a gynecologist then a GP. Also for the meanwhile you may use mefenamic acid tablets to control bleeding.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
