Since I was 12 i've gotten my periods about every 2 weeks. after i got on birth control it happens every 3 weeks, and its not out of the norm for me to have a month long period. I get sever headaches and cramps. Also at the beginning of my periods the blood is a sort of gross brown color. whats the deal?
