Long period on Yaz

I started taking Yaz on the first day of my period, it's been two and a half weeks now and my period hasn't stopped at all.  Usually it only lasts about 3-4 days for me.  This is the first time I've been on ANY birth control and I know my body's going to have to adjust, but how long should I expect this to go on?

You weren't supposed to start taking it on the first day of your period. You were supposed to start taking it on the sunday after your period ended.

That's only if you're a Sunday starter. They have two methods for starting your pack, and one of them is to start the first day of your period. That's what I did, and I'm having a super-heavy-long period right now, too.

I was on Yaz for a while, then off it for a few months, and I just went back on. I remember the long period happening last time, too. It'll even out after a while.
