This is the first time I've ever been on birth control and have only been on the bc for just under 3 weeks... and started it 1 week before my expected period like my Dr said to. I'm doin continuous use(no placebo pills) because I'm wanting to stop my period for awhile. I started lightly spotting 10days in, which continued for about 4 days, then started what looks like a normal period,which is now on day 5 with no signs of stopping. The last 2 days have been much heavier then usual... my question is, is this normal??
