    Hi everyone just looking for *hopefully* some reassuring advice as im feeling very worried.
    I am 18 and on the combined pill (microgynon) and take it religiously at 9pm every night and have not*
    missed any or been sick. I had a normal period, which finished on 6th feb. I am sexually active with my boyfriend.Yesterday i*Had dark brown blood when i wipe, and i do today too. I also have very mild cramps.
    is this just some random breakthrough bleeding? Ovulating bleeding? Old blood?*
    Never had this before, have been on pill 3 years.*

    Thanks in advance. Just feeling really worried, i get anxiety with things very easily

    Hey, I'm not currently on any contraception but I do sometimes get that dark blood too and was worried at first because it's not something I normally get, but it's very common. It is often just leftover blood. I get anxiety with these things too, it's awful! But usually it's completely normal. If you're concerned it's always worth seeing your GP as they'll be able to give you professional advice. I'd say it's fine though!
