Six week plus period on yasmin

Patient : I started taking Yasmin about 8 months ago but only ever managed to keep on it for 8 months because breakthrough bleeding scared me. I've started and stopped twice now and each time my doctor told me to keep it going and that it would become more stable. This time around I've been on it for 2-3 months and have had my period for 6 weeks now. It isn't very heavy but is showing no signs of stopping. Is this really how long it takes for your body to stabilize to Yasmin?
