I've been on Minastrin for a long time (I was on loestrin until the switch). I've really enjoyed the pill. I had two day periods that were extremely light (sometimes only one day periods) and then last month my period was heavier and lasted 8 days. Now I'm on my period again (I get it the third brown pill day) and it's been over 10 days (I'm already a week and a day into my new pack)! The bleeding is so heavy, I don't understand why this is happening. I have been on this pill since I was 16 years old and I'm almost 22 years old now. I'm away at school and so it isn't easy for me to get to my gyno (I study over 6 hours away from from home). I'm not sure what to do but I'm worried and scared.
