Getting period for over two weeks (on ortho cyclen)
I have been taking ortho cyclen continuously for almost 3 months. I'm on my third month and have about a week left on my pills, so when this pack ends I'm supposed to get my period, and I shouldn't be having it now. However, I have had a light to extremely heavy period for over two weeks. I know it's normal to have spotting in between periods, but this has been going on for a while and is far more than spotting. I don't know if I should stop taking it, or just keep going, but this is really becoming a problem for me. I have been out of town for a few days so I could not contact my local clinic (i was up in the mountains.) If anyone has had this experience and knows what its caused by and what to do about it, I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks
