Since I stopped taking the pill (contraceptive) my normal period has started coming in every 6 or so weeks.
It’s never on time or when I’m expecting it, so even though my partner and I are using condoms, I get quite paranoid.
Last time my period came I spotted once a week before it was due. So now it’s been around 6 weeks and my period should be coming, I spotted 4 or so days ago.
Yesterday I became extremely lightheaded in the shops and felt like I was going to pass out, I felt terrible like I was going to be sick. My partner brought me two drinks, first being water and second being some sugary drink but neither really made me feel better.
When I got home I started getting period-like pains down there for a while and when I went to the toilet I had some spotting and when I wiped, the tiniest amount of light blood. But since then there has been no blood, I feel heavy down there, but no where near as bad as last night.
I don’t think it’s a miscarriage, I think you’re meant to bleed a lot more than a couple of drops, but who knows. I’m a little more worried I might be pregnant, or worse. I’m getting a pregnancy test today but I’d like to know if anyone else has experienced this?
Any advice would be helpful, thanks!
