The issue (among other things) is addressed in Sage by ticket 14567, after implementation of which you will be able to say:

```
sage: K.<sqrt11> = QuadraticField(11)
sage: cf = CFF(sqrt11); cf
[3; (3, 6)*]
sage: len(cf.period())
2
```

For literature, see also the OEIS database ~~entry in question is~~entry:
