Menstrual period prolonged for more than a week
I started using the pill again on the 8th April when i started my menstration. And now more than a week later i am still bleeding.
Although it is very light and not continuous, should I be worried?

Dear Pink128
No, it may take a month or so for the hormones to settle again. However should be better by next month.
