I have PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and I have crazy periods, just like PP's friend. I never really know when it's coming, and it is not at all regular. I've bled for 5 weeks before, varying between heavy and light. I've bled crazy heavy for a day, and then it was gone for 2 months. See your doc, and see what's up. I found out I had PCOS early last year, and haven't used BC in more than 3 years...no pregnancies, no babies. It's got a number of other side effects, but the infertility was the one that hit me the hardest.
