Hi Scarlet

When you started your pill did you start it on the first day of your period? In both my experience (some years agoo) and more recently my daughter's and others on this board I believe, if you do that you often get a lot of breakthrough bleeding in the first month. If this is the regime that you followed then I think that if at all possible you should have your break fro active pills and 'let it out' as it were. You may well find that, as long as the pill is suited to you, the btb will stop or at least be greatly reduced once you start the second pack.

With regard to how long your period will be then that really depends on the individual. Both me and my daughter have it for about 5 days but I know of others who have it for only 3 days and others that have it for a week. I think anyone who has it for 2 weeks on the pill should be looking to change their pill as this is certainly not how it should be.

I wish you well and hope that things sort themselves out very soon :)
