Customer Question

I started taking a birth control last month. I just started the second pack three days ago, but my period is still persisting. I've taken all the pills correctly, so I'm not sure why this is or if it's normal. When I started the first pack, my period stopped after I took the first active pill; I'm not sure why it still hasn't stopped with three active pills this time.

There are 28 pills in the pack total. The last 7 are placebo pills and my period started after taking the 4th placebo pill.
