Breakthrough bleeding?
I have been on Mirelle for about 5 years now (I am 26) and have never had problems. My period ended on the 12 November and since the 17th I have had spotting/breakthrough bleeding. Sometimes it is a lot sometimes just a few spots. I have also had occasional cramps in my abdomen, nothing too serious though. What could be causing this? Can my hormones be messed up due to stress or is it something more serious? I went for a pap smear 7 months ago and all was fine. Please give me some advice. Thank you.

This could be stress related. As it is the first time it has happened, I would suggest that you wait and see what happens next month.
