5 months ago exactly I started using the pill. During the school holidays I skipped my period(continued with the pink pills and skipped the 4 white ones). That was on the 17th of March 2010. After that I continued like I usally do. I took my white pills and everything was fine. But on the14 of April 2010 my period started, it was medium(like it has been sice I started taking the pill). It hasen't stoped!!! It's very light and I've had it since the 14th of April 2010, now it's the 9th of May 2010 and I still have a light period. It's brownish stuff and I can see blood but ony with I wipe. It does stop but for a very short time.

Can somebody please help me and tell me whats going on ?

  • Are you still taking the pills? It might be just the way your body reacts to whatever's in the pills. When I was on the pill I got bad stomach cramps and found myself to always be tired and often sick so I got off them, then I tried the Depo Shot and had my period like yours for a whole nine months, when I got off that I went without a period for almost a year and a half. I'm a little bit eerie to go on birth control again, but might give the patch a shot.Have a chat with your doctor see what he/she thinks.Good Luck xx

  • I reacted that way when I tried to skip my period. Not all women can successfully skip their periods. Also, sometimes just switching to a different pill can help. The estrogen level can cause longer periods. Talk to your doc and they can try a different pill to find one that works with your body.
