I'm near the end of week 5 of the stack. As soon as I hit week four, the point at which I should have taken the placebos, I started bleeding. It wasn't as heavy as a period, but it was a hell of a lot more than I associate with the term "spotting." That has remained constant for two weeks.
What's going on here? I hear people talking about stacking to avoid having a period at a particular time, but it's not preventing my bleeding -- it's just stretching it out. Will this stop? Am I just slowly shedding the last lining my body made, but now I won't make those anymore so I'll be blood-free?
I'm on Microgestin, if that's relevant. Early thirties, always had regular periods so the plumbing appears to be in good working order.
