Hi doctor,

My regular period comes 24th of every month. I had taken I-pill on the 15 of last month and after that my period came on 24th. Again, I took I-pill on 28th and got period on 5th of this month. Now, again, I am bleeding in a gap of 10 days. Please advise whether it is normal or something serious. Please help me.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

After taking the second I-pill, the withdrawal bleed started on 5th, which again marked the onset of a fresh cycle.

So, the next bleeding could have been due to an early ovulation and possibly an ovulation bleed.

Also, sometimes intermenstrual bleeding is common to experience if I-pill is frequently used. Please do not use I-pill often as it has progesterone side effects.

Presently, if the bleeding has stopped, then nothing to worry and just observe your cycle. Your next cycle may be delayed by a week or so. So, you need to stay informed.
