Hey, so i have been on the pill microlite for the past 6 months.. Each month on the week when i dont take any pills i always get my period on the 2nd day.(wednesday) Today is the wednesday but last thursday i was spotting brown blood and by friday it was heavier and has been red on and off.. Its now pretty much stopped and is only there when i wipe. Was that my period? Or should i expect my regular period to come today. I have taken the pill everyday and never missed one and this has never happened before! Im scared it could be pregnancy?

Dear Anon,

Have you tested for pregnancy?

So on the thursday (yesterday) i got what seemed like my normal period. It was red and a small bit lighter then usual. Today its stopped again and is brown when i wipe? Whats going on? Is it just an irregular period?

Thank you for posting. It sounds like you may have had your period a little earlier this month. However, because it was irregular for you it is always best to test for pregnancy when in doubt. Sometimes odd periods happen and then your normal period will resume the following month but it is always best to be sure that pregnancy isn't an option. 

Best of luck,
