I just started taking birth control for the first time. I'm taking Low-ogestrel. I took the first pill on the first day of my period, as directed by my doctor. That was on May 16th. I have been bleeding since then, this is the 11th day of bleeding. Normally my periods last 5-7 days. Should I be worried? Thank you.

Body needs few months to adapt to the hormones from outside so side effects like prolonged period or spotting are possible. You shouldn't worry about them for now but if bleeding becomes too heavy or prolonged you can consult your gynecologist.
