I was use to using the patch, did great. Now 9 months after having my baby, my dr. started me on femcon. I hate it!!!! I have been bleeding for 11 days. My doctor's nurse says give it time. I am sick and tired of this period. I will be starting my 2nd month of pills,tomorrow, if it doesn't stop soon I will toss them in the trash.
