I'm on birth control pills and my period started again one week into my pill pack and has not stopped for two weeks. Should i still start on my new pill pack as usual?

Hi Anon,

Are you bleeding heavily still? If so, you should see your doctor to determine the cause and whether or not he wants you to continue your pill pack. Give him/her a call tomorrow and see if and when s/he'd like to see you. Please do this as soon as possible, bleeding for a long time can lead to anemia or hemorrhaging.

Keep us posted,
