Brief Answer:
Can take for long term

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
One has to wait for at least 7 days in the pill free period for the bleeding.
New femilon should be started on the 1 St day of the periods.
You can continue the femilon for long term beyond 2 years, if it is well tolerated and there are no associated side effects.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
urine pregnancy test advised

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
You should wait for 7 days for the periods.
If the periods do not come, then you should get the urine pregnancy test to rule out any pregnancy.
If you get your periods, then you should take your femilon from day 1.
