... I left it in 9 months past the 5 year limit, but I NEVER had problems with it. I bled for nearly 5 months solid upon insertion, then have had no period and very little spotting at all since. Now I am concerned that I have 7 weeks I have still shown no sign of a period, even though I started the pill IMMEDIATELY after the removal and am 2 weeks past the hormone week of the pills. Is this normal???
