Abnormally long periods

I had one ipill 10 days before my periods were due. I got them on 16 may, 6 days earlier than expected. It was light bleeding. Then they stopped after 5 days for 3 days. I started my period again on 29 may and it's been 18 days since they first started. This has never happened before. I take no other medications.

Hello there...., it is due to hormonal imbalance.... In a normal menstrual cycle, a balance between the hormones estrogen and progesterone regulates the buildup of the lining of the uterus (endometrium), which is shed during menstruation. If a hormone imbalance occurs, mentrual irregularities occurs.....Consult Gynecologist for further evaluation....
