I am 34 years old and on the pill. Before my period I had a bad stomach bug. Now nearly two weeks after my period was due to end I am still bleeding and really scared.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us for advice.

Since you are taking birth control pills, I am very surprised that you continue to have menstrual bleeding while taking the active hormone containing pills.

Please contact your gynecologist today.
