odd goings on!


hiya ladies, i was wondering if i could use some of your expertise...

here goes...i came off the pill for just over a week on the 24th of jan (bit of a long story so i wont go into it) but i went back on it on the 2nd of feb.

so ive been back on it for around a month. however for the last week and a half/two weeks ive been bleeding (of sorts). its not really a period of such, its just there when i wipe and at random points during the day and its more of a brownish colour than red (sorry tmi...but couldnt explain it any other way).

im quite confused as whats going on with me. is it just an effect of coming off the pill for a bit??

in all honesty in the week that i wasnt on the pill me and OH dtd but he pulled but before he came (now i know this isnt the most effective method it just kinda happened) i cant imagine that im pregnant with the kind of bleeding that is going on but just thought that i should give you all the info for you to give me any advice.

thank you for reading xx

Hi MissKM

I'm imagining that its a result of coming off and going back on the pill in close succession- what you describe can happen when you're on the pill randomly at the best of times (has happened to me a few times), but when you start confusing your body by starting and stopping a bit, it probably doesn't know what it's doing

It sounds too long for implantation bleeding (usually only a few days), but I know some women do bleed more during pregnancy, even a healthy one. Do you have any other symptoms of pregnancy? If you think it could be...test

i though this just didnt think it would affect me this much with be only being off it for a really short time
the only other pregnancy symptom id say i have would be sore boobs, they are kind of fuller that usual too, but i put just this down to bleeding...when i had periods (the pill completely stopped them) i used to get quite tender boobs xx

Ah, are you on the mini pill then? I am too and havenet had a period in over a year. I didn't get any problems for a year, then a few months ago I had some brown discharge like you describe. And my boobs are SO painful and have def increased in size (had to get a couple of bigger bras last week as in my old ones I suddenly had 4 breasts!!). I was certain I'd fallen pregnant, but 5 tests suggest I've not!!!

With the mini pill you're more likely to get these odd bleeding episodes (if you cam even call it bleeding!)

I was on that for a bit but got bad headaches on it so switched to micronor. I also didn't have any bleeds/symptoms on cerazette. It's literally the last few months that it's all hit and it's doing my head in. I've also been cramping like I'm gonna come on but then don't. For me the couple of bleeds were so light- just there a teeny bit when I wiped and only lasted a day or 2 it's been ok- it's the other things that got me- esp the painful boobs. Trying to figure what to do at the mo. Like you OH also commented on size!!

I'm guessing, as you had the spell off it, give it a month and it'll settle down. I'm hoping it will for me too, although I've not missed any, an it's been 6 weeks or so now!

Xxx

Hi there, you would definitely get this sort of thing because of stopping and restarting the pill. When you stop the pill your body believes it is time to have a period and so you could get these symptoms of spotting.
