how long of a period have you had? I have been on my period for 10 days and normally I will only be on it for 5 days. my doctor office (I'm a new patient with her but it's her colleague in the office) said that it's a new medication for me. I told them that this is the same pill and dosage I had for the last 3 months and this never happened. I still told not to worry about it but I'm still freaking out, nervous, and scared. has this ever happened to anyone else

      I've had spotting for a week and then an actual period for around a week or more. I think I've had one last around 10 days before... Have you changed anything else in your lifestyle? Sometimes it can be small changes, even in products you use, that mess with our periods. I don't think you need to be worried, just be aware. Maybe if you write down things you eat, your activity, what products you're using (body and cleaning, etc), sleep, stressors, and see if there's any difference when something changes, you could do or not do things accordingly. Don't over burden yourself though. Do what you can. Just try not to worry (easier said than done I know)

One user mentioned having a period that lasted three and a half months. Another user reported experiencing a period for 9 days after starting a new birth control medication. It's common for hormonal changes, such as those caused by birth control pills, to affect the length and heaviness of periods. However, if you're concerned about your prolonged period, it would be best to consult with a healthcare professional.
