I have started taking Yasmin to try to help regulate and lighten my periods as they have become very heavy and last for a long duration about 15-20+ days.

I have had my pill free week where I started bleeding but I started taking the pills again 3 days ago and the bleeding g has still not stopped! Is this normal? When should it stop? I am so fed up and tired of bleeding all the time and now experiencing so much pain.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Continue to take the birth control pills as instructed at scheduled time daily even if your periods have not stopped. Start the next pill pack as scheduled after you finish with the current birth control pill pack. It can take about 2-3 months to be able to get your body adjusted to the hormonal contraceptive use and change in period pattern. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
