I've been on birth control for about 10 years. I've never had any problems with it. I was trying to skip my period this time because I was going to be with my boyfriend for the weekend. But I had already taken 2 inactive pills. Then I took the 2 active pills and my period still came. So my period is here all during the active pills. It usually starts on wed and is ending by sat but today is sat and it's still bright red. So am I having 2 periods this month or is this screwed up and is going to last all month? My partner and I haven't had sex in a month so we are cranky and stressed.
