Two weeks of menstruation ?

Is it normal to have two weeks of menstruation? i just started taking pills 14 days ago which was my first day of period. I usually have my menstruation for 3 to 5 days.

Keshnieleene, It might be a normal side effect from the pill called breakthrough bleeding. It will normally go away after a few cycles.

Speak to your doctor to find out what you should do, especially if the bleeding is heavy or does not stop soon. He/She might try another type of pill or give you other advice.

Best of luck!
