Patient :My doctor started me on lo loestrin fe about 7 days ago when my period began. My period normally lasts about a week. My flow starts to get much lighter by the 3rd-4th day and it was getting heavier. I stopped taking the birth control yesterday in hopes my period would begin to slow down. Also I am a smoker with a family history of heart disease and I don't want to be worried about any side effects or problems. When will the bleeding end? Will it just remain heavier and for a while? I only took 5 days worth.
