Hi, I am 19 years old and I have just started to become sexually active....and when i did have sex for the first time i wasn't on the birth control pill..but as soon as I got back home i took it that night cause i was scared and thought that since i just had sex and i was going to get pregnant. and then i have not missed taking my birth control pills and taken it at the same time every morning. So i have had sex with my boyfiriend three times..the first time i didnt bleed as much but the second time i bled alot more and then the third time i hardly bleed and now after the third time i had my peiord and now i havent stopped bleeding. I dont know what to do.

I had something similar to this happen to me a few months after I started taking birth control. My period lasted for almost 2 weeks. I ended up going to the ER because of it. They said it was just because of my birth control and my body getting use to it. It is def a good idea for you to talk to your doctor about it though just to be on the safe side. You can never be to sure about things like that.

You need to see a doctor/GYN if you do not have insurance, is there a free clinic or planned parenthood you can go to?
