The pill and break through bleeding watch

    I went on the pill four years ago as perscribed by my gyno due to years of painful periods.

    I have never had a problem before and have on quite a few occasions run pill packets together without any problems. And I have run a couple of packs together this time too.

    However, I am a week away from the end of my pack and yesterday I had cramps and today I started bleeding. Its fairly light but took me as a total shock.

    I would expect it in the first four months but not after four years. I went to the chemist and she told me to keep taking the pills and not to worry too much.

    But I can't help but worry, I just don't know why this suddenly started after so long!:woo:

    I was told that light bleeding is normal when pack are run together, but I guess it depends on the type of pill you use.

    Hi this happened to me a couple of weeks ago! I've been on microgynon 30 for about 5 years and frequently ran packs together with no problems. Then at christmas I ran 2 packs together which was fine but 2 weeks ago I had really bad cramps and bled for about a week which was a pain. I was really worried too but I guess it just happens

    Theres nothing you can do. You may find your actual period ends a little quicker during the break as you have already been bleeding.
