    I was thinking of coming off the pill for a while, but now I've read that, I don't think I will.
    Sorry, my post was as useless as a bucket with a hole in it.

    How long (in days) have you been bleeding for Tink? When I came off microgynon I bled really heavily for about 10 days.

    Did you stop mid way through a pack?

    I did this once on the combined pill, stopped part way through a strip, due to circumstances beyond my control. I bleed for about six weeks at which point I went back on the pill and eventually things settled down again.

    Hey, Im on microgynon, been on it for years now, apparently its one of the strongest contraceptive pills out there, around xmas time I came off it and I didn't come back on til a few days ago. Id certainly go to the doctor but what you are experiencing isn't unheard of, I suppose when you mess with your hormones your body takes a while to get back to normal :)
