    I'm on the 15th day of taking microgynon (combined pill) I've been on this pill for quite a few years but I started bleeding two days ago. This has never happened before but I didn't know if it means anything? The blood is very dark (browny colour, sorry for the gory details) I'm not due my period until next Friday/Saturday (18th/19th Nov) I've carried on taking my pill as normal after doctors advice but I didn't know if anyone had experienced the same thing?

    I'm on the same Pill and have been for about 3 years. Just this year I started getting spotting like that in the week after my period and I have had friends on the Pill have the same experience, so yes it is normal.
    I worried too and checked the leaflet that came with my Pills and it is classed as a 'common, affects 1/10' side effect so I wouldn't worry at all.
    Unless you're in pain it will just be normal.
