Hello doctor,

I have a question. Well, I had an STD. It was chlamydia, but it was cured. It was months ago. I recently had sexual relationships like two months ago, after that, I started getting a yellow discharge and I went to the doctor. They told me I had UTI. They gave me pills that I am taking and my period did not come for like one month and my period usually is not regular. And now that I am taking the pills, my period has not stopped bleeding for 13 days now, and usually, it lasts a week. But, I am worried because I do not know if it is the pills or not because it does not stop coming.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The pill is not the cause of bleeding.

You said your cycles are not regular. So, what happens is because the cycle duration is long, there are chances of heavy bleeding.

Unless you have confirmed that pregnancy was not there (abortion can cause too much bleeding), do a urine pregnancy test just to rule out it is not an abortion.

If it is just heavy bleeding due to hormonal imbalance then take tablet Pause 500 mg three times a day for five days.
