I took my first pill a week ago today, on the first day of my period. So far, i have not stopped bleeding. By the fifth day of my period, when it usually stops, it was light and seemed like it would be the end of it, but it has been that way since, which is three days later. I was just wondering if anyone had any similar experience. I know everyone reacts different, but I was looking for some insight as to what to expect.
This is not unusual when starting the Pill. Some wome have irregular bleeding for the first few months. Just keep taking your pills as they come in the pack no matter what your body is doing, bleeding or not. The pills hormones are suppressing your own hormones and sometimes it takes a little while to do this. Eventually you will regulate out (can take 3-6 months for some women) and you will bleed during your inactive week. The pill should lighten your period from what you are normally used to.
