Bleeding on the Pill

I have been taking the pill for seven months now and for the last two months I have had my period during the week gap, but then having another period a week and a half - two weeks into taking the next pack of pills. Should I be worried about this? Is there something wrong with me?


Dear A,

It sounds like you may be having breakthrough bleeding, which is another name for bleeding between periods. This is a common side effect of the Pill. You should talk this over with your doctor. He or she may recommend changing to a different brand of Pill.
