STRANGE PERIOD...
Hi Doc

I'm a bit concerned and confused...
i'm 23 years old, on the pill (triphasil) have been for a year and am due to come on to my period on the tuesday after starting a new packet which will be tomorrow. on Saturday my period seemed to start, i bled for about half an hour and then stopped. i feel bloated and like a usually do before a period.

what could have caused it and do i need to worry?

thanks

It sounds like a breakthrough bleed. If this is the first time it ahs occurred, wait and see what happens next month.
