Thanks for posting your query.
The bleeding that you are having now is due to stopping the oral contraceptive suddenly. This is the withdrawal bleeding.
To decrease the bleeding you should start with a new pack of Krimson 35 and it will take at least 72 hours to produce an effect. In case the bleeding is very heavy then you might need hemostatic agents after consulting your gynecologist.
Meanwhile do start with oral iron supplements to combat the iron loss due to bleeding.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Doc is there any pblm in taking this pill.. And i want to go for a surgery?
Answered by Dr. Rakhi Tayal 48 minutes later
Thanks for writing again.
There should not be any problem in continuing with this pill. But before going for any surgery, do inform your surgeon regarding the pills you are taking as these do increase the chances of XXXXXXX vein thrombosis after surgery.
Hope my answer is helpful.

hi, last month when I had my period I started back on the microgynon pill after a year of being off it. I stupidly didnt take it regularly enough and after my period ended I was having constant brown discharge for 2 weeks, I went to doctors and had all the tests and everything was fine, they could be the pill where ive not taken it properly so I stopped taking it and after 3days it all stopped. So I started the pill again this month when I came on and have taken the pill properly everyday, but came on my period a week later then normal which I guess is because of last.months mess up, I bled for 7 days and now have am into the 2nd day of brown discharge again. its really frustrate me, is it because its my body sorting out from last months mess up or the pill? but ive been taking it properly where as last time I wasnt so I dont know what to do.would appreiciate some sort of answer.
