  • I do that about every month. When I get down to the last 4 or 5 pills. Its kinda like your body gettin ready to go, cant wait to start. lol.....I wouldnt worry that much about it.

    I might mention it to your gyn. the next time you go. But I think most women experience a little breakthrough bleeding on the pill from time to time.

  • My dr. told me that is called "break threw bleeding" and he changed my b.c he said that I had been on that b.c for too long. So he changed my b.c and I didn't have "break threw bleeding" anymore! So maybe call your dr tomorrow and let them know they might want to change your b.c.

  • i know its possible but i have never had the break through bleeding.i have also missed like 3 pills out of the pack and its very faint but you can see the hint of blood when i wipe.i just worried if maybe i could be preggo because i know a lot of people have gotten pregnant off the pill and thats a fear of mine.i been on these pills a little over a yr and this has never happened before.
