I’ve been on the unbranded Desogestrel mini pill for the last two months after drs took me off the combined due to migraines.
I started the new pill as soon as I finished the last strip of the combined, had a regular period as I would’ve normally and everything was great for the first month, no major side effects. However, the second month I got my period around the time I expected it (beginning of the second strip), and I’ve now been bleeding (ranging between really light to medium ish) for nearly three weeks. It’s starting to really annoy me as it’s not always heavy enough for tampons etc but it’s still there.
Does anyone know if this is normal, and if so if it’s likely to settle down anytime soon (or will it ever??). I want to wait it out until I’ve finished this box (three months worth, so one strip to go), but very tempted to go back to the drs if it’s not going to settle. Obviously I’m aware everyone’s different, but interested to hear other’s experiences!
