Think I might've had a miscarriage? Please help! watch

    Ok so the first time I came off the contraceptive pill for the break week, I know you're supposed to bleed, but was told it's not meant to be as heavy as an actual period. My bleed actually came on the last day I was meant to take a pill. For the first day my bleeding was minimal, but afterwards it was very heavy with lots of clotting. The cramps were also near unbearable and I was feeling quite run down and sick and sore. I first thought it was just down to the changes the pill had made to my body, but after searching around because I was a little concerned, I'm now wondering if I was pregnant and didn't realise, and suffered a miscarriage? I also wrote to a superdrug online doctor and she replied saying I should go and see my actual GP to be sure as it sounded a bit worrying. The bleeding had stopped by then so I didn't. Obviously I didn't think I was pregnant so I didn't take a test, so I'll never know for sure. Was just wondering if anyone has had this experience, and your opinions on what happened? Many thanks.

    The hormones in the pill affect people differently. As long as you took it correctly when you should have done, it's unlikely that you were pregnant. Don't forget, you're pumping your body with hormones it's not used to. As long as the symptoms have stopped now, I'd say it's probably fine. But if your next bleed is like this then perhaps ask to change your pill - as it obviously doesn't suit you.
