I didnt want to have a period last month, so i doubled up on my packed and starting taking a new one when i should have stopped. Instead of not having a period, i came on a week later then planned if i didnt double up and ive been bleeding for 10 days. I finish my pill packet on monday and have my 7 day break. Is this normal and what do i do? Im meant to come on nexr friday and im worried i will?? Is this normal and why?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The bleeding that you describe could have been due to the breakthrough bleeding. Continue to take the pills as instructed. Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding while being on placebo pills. If you do not get your periods, or if you get abnormal bleeding, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to look for the underlying cause. Get started on appropriate treatment (based on examination findings and investigations results). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
