Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Yes you can continue taking femilon for more than two years continuously if you are not having much of its side effects like weight gain, etc.Also, at this stage there is no better option for contraception for you except for femilon. The heavy bleeding is expected for 3-4 cycles after stopping pills.

Hi Debadrita Ghosal, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
The active component in Femilon is Ethinylestradiol which is a Derivative of Natural Estrogen Homone. Any Hormonal Drug if taken for Prolonged period is harmful. Prolonged usage is known to cause Endometrial cancer. If you don't want to conceive, you can ask your Husband to use a Condom and you can use Combined oral contraceptive Pills. The bleeding had occurred due to withdrawal of Hormonal Effect. You wont have any Problem in conceiving if your Periods are regular. Kindly consult your Gynecologist before taking any Medicine.

Good Luck.
