period lasting 3 1/2 weeks
I started on oral contraceptives (rivedgon), at the start of my period as advised by doctor. I have not stopped bleeding since then 3 1/4 weeks almost a month. I am worried is this normal?? For first time on oral contraceptives. Should i see a doctor?, how long could this go on for? Thankyou !

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to take two pills a day for 3-4 days.  This should stop the bleeding and then you can go back to just 1 per day.  You are going to have to speak to your doctor about this, because your pills will run out too soon if you take two per day.
The other way to do this would be to switch pills to a higher dose for awhile.
Good luck!
Dr B
