Are withdrawal bleeds real periods? Can withdrawal bleeds continue through pregnancy?
I'm not sure how all of this works. I take microgynon and have withdrawal bleeds, but someone mentioned to me that those are not "real" periods. So I am curious as to whether a person can be pregnant and continue having withdrawal bleeds. Say I was to miss a pill or two, and fall pregnant without knowing it. Then I continued taking my pills as normal. Would I continue to have withdrawal bleeds between each pack of pills, or would those stop? Can a withdrawal bleed be used as proof I'm not pregnant, or can a person be pregnant and still keep bleeding?
I hope this made sense.
