Hi all. Just wondering if anyone can give me a second opinion on this. I'm on the mini pill and I've just done my "always take a test before you start a new packet of pills just to make sure" test. I know there's probably nothing there, but you know what it's like when you catch your test in the wrong light, see a shadow and then you're convinced there's a squinter. Thanks ladies. EDIT: I know the mini pill is supposed to stop you ovulating which is why so many women experience no bleeding while taking it. However, on the sheet I've just finished taking I did bleed for around four days but it was lighter than the periods I used to have before taking the pill. Is it possible to have a 'period' without ovulating? I'm guessing this was a breakthrough bleed but it hasn't happened before so it concerned me a little.
