Hi ladies just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I was on microgynon for about a year. I stopped in January. I then started for one month in July then stopped again. However ive noticed for this entore year my periods are much shorter. I have like 24 hours very heavy then 3 or 4 days of spotting. I'm starting to worry a little about this. I have been using the clearblue monitor and have had peak readings so think I do Ov. Is short periods ok or could it be a sign of a problem? I have been ttc on and off since Jan but only really properly about 4 months out of that.

Short periods are no problem.

I have noticed my period since being off the pill is shorter and lighter, i have a few days of spotting before my period, your situation sounds very much like me, i have made an appointment with the doctor to see if there is anything that can be done
