If you are only just starting taking BCP's then don't expect anything too soon. It can take quite a few months before you notice any difference in your periods. I've been taking Diane for 3 months now and I'm still getting quite heavy periods for the first 2 days and they are lasting for the whole 7 days. Even with my previous pill (Levlen) it was quite a while before they started getting lighter. It takes some time for you body to adjust.

So basically, don't get discouraged if you don't notice a difference straight away. Stick to it. BCP's are great :)
