    Default Bleeding on the pill

    Just after some advice whether this is normal or not. Started taking the pill in November after a missed miscarriage. Everything has been going fine, purposely skipped AF last month and this month however I have been having bleeding every day, mainly in the mornings for 7 days now. Has anyone had this happen? Is it normal?

    i had this happen to me. started taking dianne (as i'd taken it years ago and it seemed to agree with me) and i tried skipping a period. totally did not work, i felt crampy and was spotting constantly. in the end i gave up and just stopped taking it, bled properly then ditched the rest of the pack. obviously what worked for me in my 20s wasn't working for me in my 30s. obviously the hormone levels weren't high enough to stop whatever was happening from going on. whilst i wouldn't say it's abnormal, it's not the intended result. so i'd go back to my gp if i were you.

    Yep seems to be the exact same thing that you weren't through, happening to me now. I actually stopped it yesterday and it seems that my normal AF has arrived today. We were planning to TTC in the coming weeks, may as well bring it forward I guess.

    When I was on the pill I'd start spotting in the last week of the actual pills, then would have a really bad, heavy, painful period. The pill did a right number on my hormones.

    Just asking a question to my old thread. So I stopped the pill and got what seemed like a normal pill now CD33 with no sign of AF and not pregnant. Did anyone else have something similar happen?
