I have never been on birth control before but I started using Microgestin Fe 1/20 December 8th. I have a 28 day pack. Its my second week of being on the active pills and today I noticed some spotting in the morning. I just assumed it was break through bleeding and I wasn't too worried. Later on though I started to get cramps and I took midol and went to the bathroom and saw that I was bleeding like I would on a regular period. It has lightened up a little bit as the day went on but I am still a little worried if this is a normal symptom or not Would this be considered breakthrough bleeding or am I on my period during the active pills? Should I not even worry?
Some women can experience irregular bleeding cycles when they start taking the pill. If you are taking your pills as prescribed, daily, etc. then this bleeding would be breakthrough bleeding as you will get your period at the normal time when you are about half way through week 4 of the pack. If irregular bleeding occurs after you have been on the pill for more than 3 months, then please let your doctor know.
