Bleeding on the mini pill?

(1 Post)

I've only been on the mini pill for 3 weeks, but I started part way through my cycle. I was due AF on the 8th, but have been experiencing spotting (only when I wipe- brown, old blood) for 5 days. Is this a substitute to a period, or just this famous breakthrough bleeding I've been hearing about? I think it may be getting slightly heavier though, and it is becoming a more normal dark red colour. Haven't had cramps or PMS like usual.

Annoyed because I'm going to visit my boyfriend who I haven't seen for weeks, and my period always seems to sync up with visiting time!!

Any mini pill stories/advice? smile
