Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I do not know how long you have been on contraceptive pills and which one these are? Either combined oral contraceptive pills or mini-pills have Progesterone only. Combined pills have lots of side effects especially for females with high BMI (body mass index) while Progesterone only pills show irregular bleeding. It depends on every individual females body (that how long and how much you get bleeding).

Have some healthy lifestyle. Try to avoid long-term use of same contraceptives to avoid its side effects. Have some investigations and have proper treatment. Try to reduce BMI by having daily exercise and walk as this will help you to prevent side effects of many things. Try to change contraceptives. Have full treatment of any disease, if you have any.

A healthy nutritious diet with recreational activities and avoidance of recreational drug if you are using occasionally. Have local examination by gynecologist doctor even hysteroscopy to exclude any local pathology. Get a transvaginal scan, colonoscopy clinic visit to exclude cervical pathology, complete blood count, thyroid function test, and high vaginal swab.
