Long Period

Hi!  I am on YAZ birth control, but haven't had sex for 7 weeks since me and my ex broke up.  So I missed three days in a row of my pill on the third week, and I read you are supposed to restart a whole new pack if you miss that many on that week.  But between that time I got my period, so I started taking a new pack like the instructions said.  The weird thing is, is that I'm still on my period and today is day 9.  My periods are usually short, probably 4 days.  Is it long just because I missed some pills, or is something wrong with me?  I'm 23 years old and usually have very regular, short periods.  Thanks!!

i had to start on YAZ because my other birth control was to expensive....well i skipped a few days in between the switch, and i had my period for 14 days. it took about 2 or 3 months before i was completly regular again. my doctor said it was normal because i missed a few pills. i think you are okay. if it doesnt stop soon though, you should probably go to your doctor
