... bleeding a week after.. I just started on the light blue pills and I was just wondering if this was normal? I didn't think I would still have my period after a week of being on the pill

Its normal to have weird bleeding when you are getting used to the pill. Just keep taking your pills like you should and in a few months your body will get straightened out. Its also normal to have very light, or even no period once in a while when you're on the pill. As long as you've taken it as it should be, you'll be safe, and this doesn't mean you are pregnant.

It should be stopping soon. Your hormones and the pills hormones are both circulating in your body. Eventually the pills hormones will override your own and you will settle down into a rhythm. This can take 3-6 months to happen in some women. this is not to say you will bleed this long but you may have some episodes of breakthrough and irregular bleeding in these first few months. Hang in there and keep taking the pills as they come in the pack, no matter what your body is doing and soon you will regulate. Just be patient and hang in there.
