I have been on the pill for 15 days now - I still have a period

I just started Loryna and I have been on that pill for 15 days so far and for those 15 days, I am STILL on my period. It's a real dark red almost brownish in color (no odor) and it's not heavy enough to wear a tampon or pad. Just when I pee is when I would notice the problem. Should I make a doctor's appointment or wait it out?

It doesn't sound like your period, I would say by what you have described, it's more spotting.

As you've only been on the pill for 15 days and still on the first pack, wait.

It's going to take a while for your body to adjust to all the artifical hormones you're putting into it. It can take up to 3 months for your body to adjust to it. If you're still having a problem, see your doctor.
