I've been on microgestin for a week and 5 days. My first time taking any form of hormonal birth control ( I'm 22 ) ... I haven't had any changes that have alarmed me. I felt very sleepy the first few days but it may just be from studying so hard. Today I had to use the bathroom (number 2) and when I wiped I noticed bright red blood on the tissue... not a lot but enough for me to notice... I noticed there was a little red through my stool also ( sorry if this is a bit graphic for anyone). I have an appointment to see my schools doctor already but it was made a few days ago to monitor my blood pressure on Wednesday. I've read things online but I'm not sure if this is normal or if I should stop taking my pills. I feel 100% fine.
