I have been on my period now for four weeks. Yes, four straight weeks. And it's driving me crazy. It is not heavy, but enough that I need to wear a tampon at all times.
I have been taking the generic Lo-Seasonique birth control for about two years, and only one other time have I had an extended period, which lasted three weeks. (That was almost a year ago and I came down with mono at the same time.)
Nothing about my lifestyle has changed. My diet, weight and habits are all the same. No new sexual partners, no other medications and I had a pap about a year ago that showed completely normal results.

It's important to remember that all episodes of vaginal bleeding do not represent a menstrual period. There can be other reasons for abnormal vaginal bleeding that have nothing to do with menstruation. And a Pap smear only looks at one aspect of reproductive health.

It would be a good idea to make an appointment with your gynecologist to get this abnormal bleeding looked into medically.
