    I know this is probably TMI, I'm just a very paranoid person. I've recently just started taking microgynon 30 and I started it on the first day of my cycle, ive finished my period and usually would finish spotting by now however I've been spotting for 5 days and it's like brown discharge, I was wondering if that was a normal side effect of taking the pill or is it something else?

    I've been taking the pill for about three years now and I get that on and off sometimes still. Sometimes it depends on if you've had sexual activity around your period as well. It's nothing to worry about really, but if it continues or gets worse or you are still worried then it's always worth letting a doctor know, I had a friend who used another pill and her period just wouldn't finish! Its rare that people have bad reactions but if anything concerns you, don't feel afraid to go for a check up! But I honestly wouldn't worry, sometimes I spot in between periods especially if I skip a break!
