Breakthrough bleed?Watch this thread
So I skipped my period using the pill a couple of weeks ago. I've been on the pill for 3 years now and this is the first time I've done this. It's just under two weeks till my period is due, but I've been spotting and bleeding a small amount within the past couple of days, almost like a light period. Is this normal? Will I still have a proper period when it's due or will I not have one at all? I've never done this before so help is appreciated! I haven't had unprotected sex and I take my pill at the same time everyday and never mess it up!
If this is the case, then yeah don't worry too much spotting happens to some women when they run packs together. If you read the paper that comes with your pills it should say it in there. If you're concerned speak to your GP or whoever prescribes you your contraceptives as they'll be able to clarify further.
Whether or not you'll have a proper period when it's due really depends, for some women it can alter the cycle slightly and they may miss one and for others they may still get it on time and for others it may be early or late. This is just because we're all ever so slightly different and the levels of hormones effect us slightly differently
But yeah, I do recommend you go speak to whoever prescribes them to you anyway, just to put you at ease.
