I started getting bleeding every 15 days for about 5-8 days. So my doctor prescribed Mononessa 28s. I started on the correct Sunday after/during a period as she instructed (days 1-3 I still had my period -sun-tues-). I am finished with my first pack. I began bleeding on day 15 of being on the pill (just 12 days after starting the pill). It is extremely tiring having period every two weeks and I was surprised my period arrived in about its time period of 10-15 days after the last.
I am on the birth control to regulate and hopefully only bleed once a month. How long does it take to get "normal?"
It will take a few months for your period to get regulated. Just keep taking your pills correctly and it will straighten out. The pill causes the lining of your uterus to get to be less so that your period will be less.
It can take 2-6 months for you to completely regulate out to where you will be while on the Pill. As kaismama mentioned, the Pill reduces the build up of the lining of the uterus and it will take a few months to get this full effect. Try to be patient! I know that has to be a nuisance!
