    Hi there, I've been on the combined pill since December and a break in dec and jan. This month I started breakthrough bleeding with still some tablets to go before the break. At this time, I was taking the pills at different times and also had an antifungal tablet. I started bleeding a few days after. Because of the bleeding I continued taking the pills as I was afraid I wouldn't tell the difference. I've been bleeding for nearly two weeks now with slight cramps, pink blood and not very heavy but I need to wear a pad. I know spotting is normal as I'm still new to the pill. So my question is whether to have a seven day break now despite still spotting or shall I wait till the bleeding stops? Thanks!!
