Use of Contraceptive Pill

I have recently started using the 21 day contraceptive pill to relieve painful periods. I was advised not to take a break between packets because I don't want any withdrawal bleed or pain again. I have just started my second packet and have intense pain and a brown discharge typical of the end of a period. Is this normal ?

hi,thanks for query.The 21 tablets that you are taking are hormonal pills and normally after that you will have withdrawal bleeding.This could be beginning of periods and normal cycle.Normally there is break of 7 days in between packets at that time you have your periods.Pills will definitely help in reducing your problem.Please take analgesics for pain,light diet and more liquids during the periods.You can also try relaxation techniques which will definitely help.
wishing you good health.
