I went to the doctor about two months ago for my acne, and the doctor gave me birth control pills to "calm my hormones". I was told to start taking the pills once I started my period, which came a month and a half late. When I got my period, I started taking the pills. Now, I have been on a heavy period for 16 days and its a living helll. I'm going to the doctor in 15 days, but I don't know if I will still be on my period then, and if I am I think I'm pretty unhealthy. I don't know if its the pills like what's happening to my body at the moment??? please someone explain.

You need to call your doctor and see if you can get in earlier. Heavy bleeding for 15 days is not normal and if not taken care of, you run the risk of becoming anemic from the blood loss.
