Question: i'm confused if i'm having period or bleeding between period

 marila - Tue Jan 27, 2009 1:51 pm

Hello Doctor,
I started taking yasmin contraceptive pills since 4th of Jan, I was taking it regularly never missed. And twice i spotted blood very little. now 3 days back i finised all my pills and today morning i felt like i'm having my periods but its different this time i'm not bleeding like i used to on the first day of my period i'm bleeding very less now. Do you think this could be abnormal bleeding due to the pills or is it a period. Or could i be pregnent. Thank you.

User avatar Hello,

Chances are this is a normal response to the pill. If you took it regularly as prescribed your chances of pregnancy are extremely slim. However, lighter and even absent periods are common.

Best wishes.
