hi,

i have been having blood in my discharge now on and off for the last two weeks,im on the contraceptive pill and have been for 4 years and read that shouldnt cause bleeding if you have been on it longer than 2 years. i now think i may have thrush as i have had that before and the symptoms are the same. i sometimes feel sick in the morning but never am sick but i dont know if this is due to me worrying. could i be pregnant? or is there another reason for this bleeding? im tired and sleep alot but had glandular fever several years ago and dont know if this could be the cause of my tiredness. im very worried and confused please help!

Light bleeding can be a symptom of pregnancy, so do take a pregnancy test. Thrush, is a yeast infection, and would cause itchy, cottage cheese-like discharge and odor, not bleeding.
Other things that can cause spotting between periods are:
Abortion
Hormonal fluctuations
Starting, stopping, or missing oral contraceptives or estrogens (try taking these at the same time everyday, if you aren't already)
Low thyroid levels (You'd also have a change in weight usually)
Stress
IUDs occasionally cause slight spotting
Injury to the vagina from insertion of objects (Rough sex, can also cause it)
Malignant cancers
undiagnosed vaginal infections
Certain drugs, particularly anticoagulants
Vaginal dryness
GYN procedures
