My first post...
I've been on the combined pill for around 15 years now. I don't think I've ever had a break from it, but have changed pill over the years (Dianette, Yasmin, Cilest, Lizinna). I keep going through about a 4/5 month block where I don't have a withdrawal bleed during my 7 day break. I do sometimes have spotting during the month. I also do get cramps and aches when the 7 day break is approaching. Is this normal to lose periods/not have a withdrawal bleed whilst on the combined pill?
I've been told by my dr that its completely normal and nothing to worry about (also that my ovaries are suppressed and all of my hormone levels are low) but of course, having had a withdrawal bleed every month for 13 years and for it now to disappear doesn't feel 'normal'!
Should probably also mention I had a colposcopy and cryotherapy (I think?) last summer as abnormal cells were found during my smear test.
