Just started LL and having trouble with my period (sorry if that's TMI)

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.

iv had trouble there too. been on my pill for ages with no problem, now im on LL i get my period a week b4 it should arrive. its nothing to worry about im told, just keep taking the pill as always. hope it settles for u. how u finding LL? iv been on it now for 5 wks, lost 26lb to date and feel fantastic! the first week for me was difficult but if u can get through it, ul be greatly rewarded so keep it up x
