Two week period on pill ?

2 week period during the the pill? Is there something wrong, or is it just a normal side affect?
This IS just a normal side affect. Don;'t worry about it.
You should probably get it checked out.

I've been on Tri Cyclen LO for 4 months. I've taken it at the right time everyday. I got my period a week early this cycle. Not only did i get it a week early, but it didn't stop until the day it usually stops when I'm not having this problem. I need to know how/ why this happened. Also, I'm wondering if there's something wrong that I should worry about.

- -Thank you

Is this the first time you've done this? Um, I would say it is normal because it does take time for your body to get used to birth control. Sometimes when you get on the pill you may have longer periods every so often, and then sometimes you will have real short light periods I experienced this while on the pill. If you are concerned I would call your ob nurse to make you feel better. You need to worry when your not having periods.

Its break through bleeding-- its not heavy right?

Because its been longer than three months, you may want to scoot in and talk to your doctor. You may need to switch pills.

My periods usually last about 5 days. Since starting the pill about 6 weeks ago, my period came sooner, heavier, and lasted 15 days. When it finally ended, it started again 4 days later, starting light on the first two days and then got heavy again. What the hell....

I am on the same concept. This is the first time i'm talking birth control pill and i'm on the 6th day of my period and i've been using it for about 3 weeks now on the pill. How long do they usually last??

I'm about to hate the pill. sigh.
