im on birth control, and while i was in rehab the nurse missed a day of my pill.
so i doubled up the next day like my gynecologist had told me to do in this
situation. the day i doubled up i started my period. it was a week before my
original period was supposed to start, and it continued on through my regular
period. ever since then, ive been starting my period up to 2 weeks before im due
and it lasts til the end of my regular period. is this normal? will it stop? im a 17 year old female, and ive been on the pill since i was 15 and have had no problems until now.

    Hi,
    Menstrual bleeding ranging between 2-7days is considered normal, but if it I prolonged complete evaluation in this regard should be done. Abnormal bleeding patterns are common side effects with contraceptive pills. Other causes for abnormal bleeding include polycystic ovaries, anovulatory cycles, endometriosis, infections, uterine fibroids etc. You need to see a OB/GYN specialist for complete evaluation and confirmation of the cause for this. Best.
