I have been on Yasmin for nearly 7 years, and it is 1 week before my period is due. I woke up today with few spots of blood when I wiped, and tonight I noticed a little brown discharge as well. I had slight cramping a few times today, but it seemed to occur when I had to have a bowel movement.
Could this be implantation bleeding from pregnancy, or is it breakthrough bleeding? I take my combined oral contraceptive pill within 1 and a half hours of the same time every day, usually right around 6pm. Thank you
Most likely this is breakthrough bleeding. This is not unusual even if you have been taking Yasmin for several years. Pregnancy or implantation bleeding is less likely. I would advise waiting till your period is due before considering pregnancy test.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions. Please "accept" when done.
