Hi everyone so i started gildess fe 1/20 four weeks ago on the first day of my period. Im only 18 and ive never been on a pill before im on for my heavy periods and cramps and the only real side effect ive had so far is prolonged bleeding. I either bleed like a period or spot every day since i started so i dont know whether or not to be concerned or just wait it out for another month or so.
