So I’ve been taking the pill for around four weeks, a few days left of my first pill packet. For the first week I was fine, I had started the packet on the fifth day of my period and so stopped bleeding a day later. However a week later I got another extremely heavy period, I brushed it off but I’ve been spotting every day since. That was two weeks ago, and yesterday I started another period. Should I go back to the doctor or will they brush me off and tell me to wait until the end of the three months? I want to be switched to tbe combined pill as I have been on it before and experienced no side affects, whereas on the mini pill I have also noticed it has worsened my depression.

Is there a reason you are on the progesterone only pill now rather than the combined?

Hi, yes it’s because I get headaches quite often. But this didn’t seem to be a problem before

The combined pill can make you get headaches more often but it's probably best to chat to your doctor about whether you should go back on it again.

As for bleeding with the progesterone only pill, I don't think there's much that can be done other than waiting for 3-6 months to see if it will settle.
