On the pill and still bleeding?

Hey guys,

I have been on femodette for the past 4 months to regulate my cycle and avoid pain. I am taking a break every 3 months. I had the 1st 3 months and then got the most excruciating period ever. I am talking foetus position on the bathroom floor, crying and actually screaming in pain, until I passed a decidual cast (sorry for the TMI). After that little nightmare of a period I started up the pill again, I am almost done with the fist month but I have not completely stopped bleeding. I have bright red spotting and sometimes even a little blood almost every day. Is this normal?? I can't get time off work again unless it's serious as I already took quite a few days off sick when I was in too much pain to get up. Any help would be appreciated, has anyone had this happen? with femodette or any other pill?

I'd go to your GP... your allowed time off work to go to see your doctor. Some surgeries also do late night appointments... I was advised to only take 1 or 2 breaks in a year to avoid the endometrial cells returning
