As there is no history of unprotected sex recently and you didn't missed any pill so chances of pregnancy are nil.

Mercilon can cause light bleeding. As the bleeding pattern can differ in different cycle while on pills.

So this light bleeding is normal and not worrying.

If you have bleeding in between two consecutive cycles then see your doctor for a clinical exam.

Feel free for further queries.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

I had sex in May 2015 and was getting the cycle every month. In june I tried a pregnancy test but wasn't with my morning urination and it came negative.

Hope this helps.
