Really long period after resuming the pill...

I've recently started taking Yasmin again after having my first baby. Normally, my periods are about 5 days, but I started taking the pill again on the first day of my period and it's still going on - 11 days later. It shows no sign of stopping and I feel like I'll be bleeding until my next one is due to start.

Has anyone else experienced this?

I've always found that my period lasts almost twice as long when I first start taking the pill so from 4 days to 7/8.

Thanks QueenStromba. I can't remember this happening the first time I started taking it...

Do yours go back to normal for the second period, if you don't mind me asking?

Just wondering if I should make a nurse's appointment.

On the combined pill they've always been about the same length as normal but lighter from the second period onwards. I forgot to mention in my other post but normally the first period is lighter than usual like I'm bleeding about the same amount as normal but over a longer time frame.
