PCOS patient on pills and contraception. Regular bleeding but browny and flaky. Chances of getting pregnant?

I have PCOS , am on the pill and use other forms of contraception . Since being on the pill I have had break through bleeding every month. This month it is one week before my placebo pills but it s been mainly brown and kind of flaky. I also have cramping pains, but it s hard to distinguish because I know that is associated with my PCOS. Should I be worried about the discharge? And what are the chances of me being pregnant while using multiple methods of contraception?

Thanks for the query.

Your chances of being pregnant on multiple contraception is less than 1 %. So you need not worry.
And breakthrough bleeding is a very common side effect of OC pills.
I suggest you to continue taking OC Pills.
Even after 3 months if spotting persists, then you need to take OC Pills with increased dose of estrogen.
Hope this helps,
Dr Nilofer
