Two periods in one month while on birth control.

I've been on Aviane birth control for about 3 years. It's the only BCP I've ever taken. I was always very regular with my periods while on it, and I take it at the same time every morning.

I was on it for 2.5 years before having to stop for about 6 months due to changing doctors/insurance/etc. I've since started it again, and this is now my third month in a row since I got back on it. The first month, I got my period twice. I wasn't surprised and just figured it was because I was getting used to taking it again...then last month it was normal. But this month, I got it while I was on my last week of pills...then it kept going and I was on it for 2 weeks. I've finally stopped.

Any ideas what's causing this? You think it's one ovary that doesn't like this pill anymore? Do I need a stronger pill maybe?

Thanks!

My friend has been on the same birth control pill for about 10 years and a few months ago she was telling me her period would come earlier and earlier in the month. She called her doctor, they told her to keep taking them as she was.  And it ended up being where she would have her period, be off it for a few days and it would start again, she had to go in and get a different kind of birth control pill.
