    Hi everyone

    I started LL on Saturday. I have been on oral contraception for about a year. I take a pill every day (no breaks) and I haven't had a period the whole time. I'm on the one for people who are too heavy for the regular one. I take my pill at the same time every day. Haven't been doing anything different than usual.

    All of a sudden, today I am bleeding (quite lightly).

    What on Earth is going on?

    Does it mean my contraception isn't working?

    Help please anyone?

    Hi there,
    I am on the same one (I think), and when I started I had exactly the same. Don't panic you are fine, I think it has to do with the changes in your body. It will pass, may be alittle longer than a normal period but thats all. I have had two periods in the last 6 months. Its also normal in terms of that kind of pill, it can sometimes happen.

    Its a pain I know one gets used to not having one. Minor though if you think of how stunningly gorgeous you are going to look in a few months.

    Hang in there.

    Hi. It's all to do with the progestogen-only pill. It causes unpredictable patterns, can be quite annoying.
