Had baby on dec 21, 2013. Had postpartum bleeding for about 5 and half weeks. Started actual period on jan 26 ended on feb 9 was extremely heavy then normal It lasted for about 2 weeks. Had sex on feb 12 then started period again on feb 23. Still on it now. It is still very heavy and this would be the 19th day i've been on it. I have been really nauseated and extremely tired, craving cretin foods. Been getting really bad cramps and adaminal pain. Before I became pregnant my periods were light and would last anywhere from 3-4 days.I am 25 years old and this is my first child The doctor just put me on birth control and had started period before i began taking it. Is it normal to be on my period this long and for it to be extremely heavy. I do not breastfeed. Could I possibly be pregnant again.

Hi. Ok Thank you. I did call the doctor and she did say it isn't normal. Especially since it is extremely heavy and that Im still on it. Plus I am highly anemic and have really low iron It hasn't lighten up either. Its been about 25 days on it being extremely heavy. I have been getting really nauseated and dizzy constantly. I called the obgyn office and She told me to come in as soon as possible because it's not normal to be on it that long especially since she put me on birth control
