Going back on the pill - spotting

I've gone back on the pill after a couple of years off having a baby. It's the same one I was on before (Microgynon), but I've had constant spotting all month, more like a very light period, and if anything it's getting worse not better. I've just finished my first packet and quite frankly am tempted not to go back on it after the week off.

Has anyone else had this? Did it stop after your period?

My skin has also got bad and it's been making me feel a bit queasy. All this to stop using condoms?! hmm

Go back to the docs, you may be better on another pill...Your body has changed a lot since having a baby.

Ugh what a pain. You're right though, it's definitely worth trying another one.

Cheers smile

Yes I had this after having my first baby. I tried about 3 different pills, same thing happened on each one so gave up confused. Sorry, I know thats not what you wanted to hear!

I can see that happening to me! Hoping to persuade dh that in about 6 months' time we should try for baby no 2 so to be honest I can't be bothered to faff about with this too much.
Have you tried the implant instead? My doctor recommended it but one of the side effects can be spotting, which puts me off.
