Hi I'm a new birthcontrol pill user and I started my pills on a Sunday two days before I was scheduled to get my period . I did not know that you are supposed to start the pills after your period. Anyways I continued to take the pills and my period came at the end of the second week of pills which is a full week before the brown pills. My period has been really heavy and I have had bad cramps for three days. I wanted to know is this normal and also am I going to have another period when I get to the brown pills in a week because I really don't need two periods back to back . Help please
