Extended period ?: "Normal cycles" are heavier than those caused by oral contraceptives, because the amount of estrogen which makes the lining of the womb grow is higher, therefore more bleeding when a period occurs. If the bleeding persists, go to GBMC for an exam and tests ( used to live in Owings Mills).

Birth control: If your regular cycle came back exactly on time, this sounds like everything is working fine. Your body may need a few months to fully take control of your period after being in birth control pills.
