Question about the pill. (2nd period this month.)

so im on ortho novem 777 and ive been on it for about 3 weeks now.
but before i got put on the pill my gyno put me on another med. i think it was prevera to get my period started because i hadnt had one in about 2 months and i wasnt pregnant.
so i got my period finally and i took the first pill on the first sunday after it started like she told me too. and as usual my period lasted 5 days. but then about a week && 2 days ago [2 weeks after starting the pill] i get my period again. and at first it was a lite brownish spotting and i asked my mom if that was normal since she used to take ortho novem and she said it was. so after the brown spotting it became regular red blood. again i asked my mom about it and she told me that it will take a while for my period to regulate. but now its back to a darker lite brown and it really stinks. did this happen to you? or should i call my gyno and make an appointment about it?

All BC pills are roughly 90-99% effective if used properly, but with typical use, as in forgetting one day to take it, or taking it late, they are about 75-85% effective. So maybe something about that brand made it hard to remember or whatever, but all BC is pretty much the same.

This is why I'm not on bc. It messes up your body. Also, has too much side effects.

I kind of am having a similar experience.  I had my son on October 15th. Started my period on November 21st and then got the depo shot on the 26th. I bleed for almost  27 days straight.  My dr gave me a script for estrogen and I stopped bleeding.  However, 3 days later, I started my period again.
