    I've been on microgynon for about 6 months but every month during the last week before my break I come on my period. This happens regardless of whether I have my break or run packs back to back, but if I do have my pill free days then I have another period then as well. Does anyone know if there is any medical reason why this happens because it is getting really annoying. Cheers for any help

    You can have breakthrough bleeds whilst taking the pill, my nurse told me/it said on the leaflet in the pack. Personally I never did, but everyone's different. If it's really bothering you maybe go back and ask to be put on something else?

    Maybe speak to your doctor and try another brand of pill? This one might not be agreeing with you

    Breakthrough bleeding is really common, especially on microgynon- after i ran three packs together on it it took a year for my breakthrough bleeding to completely stopped, and i bled a little bit every day for three months on it! you might still be settling down with it, but if you can't be arsed with that maybe go for another pill or the implant. good luck!!
