I started my period three days early, and haven't stopped bleeding yet. Is something wrong?

I had intercourse at the beginning of April, I had my period for both April, May and June. I am on Trinessa and noticed that I started my period 3 days earlier than I usually do. It was very light and I'm still bleeding and it's been give or take two weeks. I've read so many different things, and I freak myself out. I read something about implantation bleeding (pregnancy is the last thing I want right now.) but I also read that happens 6-12 days after ovulation if you've conceived? I've had normal periods before this, and haven't had sex since. Please tell me pregnancy is slim on the list. I also have HPV and had problems with my cervix to where I needed to get a cone biopsy back in November. I'm terrified to take a pregnancy test all though I need a piece of mind, and it's coming down to seeing my GYN which makes me even more nervous. Help.

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.
I'd love to give you some advice on the matter.
First of all, you are not pregnant because you are taking birth control, and you have had 3 regular periods since you had intercourse.
Prolonged bleeding while on birth control usually means that the dosage of hormones in Trinessa is not right for you. I suggest that you do see your OBGYN doctor to discuss maybe switching to another kind of birth control that better would work better for you.
Also, since you have had problems with your cervix in the past it would be prudent to have it checked again to see if there are any lingering problems.
