Dear Anonymous,

There are certain instances where your doctor will prescribe birth control pills to regulate your period-- you have to be ready for long-term therapy rather than two months and then stopping. There can be a few reasons for this such as ovarian cysts...but the best person to give you a diagnosis is the doctor who is trying to regulate your period with birth control pills. If you are still bleeding for 10-15 days please call your doctor asap.

I hope you get an answer soon-- keep us posted!
