I'm now on day 32 of my period. It started on October 29th.

Resolved Question:

I'm now on day 32 of my period. It started on October 29th. I went to a doctor about ten days ago, got a prescription for birth control. THe next day I also had a blood and pap test done. I haven't received word back for either test yet. I'm guessing that's a good thing. I started my birth control, but at still bleeding when can I expect an end to this.

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.
Which birth control pills did you get?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Alesse 28

Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 5 years ago.
You might want to take 2 pills of Alesse per day for the next 5 days.
Then back down to 1 pill.
Also, you should have your doctor check your thyroid with a TSH thyroid blood test as this could cause bleeding too.
