It was my understanding that I would only get a period every three months however I started spotting a few days before my original due date for my monthly and then it became heavy enough that it required me to switch to a regular pad, bleeding has lasted a full week now. Is this a normal side effect? Can I expect this to not happen again? Is it possible that the pill is not strong enough?

When I called the doctor she told me she never heard of anyone getting a period and gave me the option to see if I adjust before changing my pill.

Can you help?
