heavy bleeding after starting birth control?

I've been on the pill for 10 days now. And for 7 days straight I've been heavily bleeding, and I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else? And if so how long did it last? I know bleeding is supposed to be irregular for the first few months of birth control but it's not normal to be bleeding for more than 7 days is it?

When I started birth control I bled for the whole first month and a little of the second! It's just your body getting used to it I think, but it's totally normal x
