Okay for once for me this isnt about pregnancy, at least I hope not. My latest withdrawal bleed has lasted a little longer than normal, about a day. Normally I finish on my 8th day that I take my pill in the evening. But yesterday it carried on for a bit longer and today theres still been a little bit coming. I'm obviously hoping I'm not pregnant because I'm having a withdrawal bleed, taken all my pills correctly, and have always used a condom. Do you think this is just because I'm getting older, it might have been slightly heavier too but I'm 1oo percent sure. I had my first outbreak of herpes a while ago but I don't think that has anything to do with this. I'm hoping this isnt a major deal and I'm just a bit curious? Any ideas?

With periods or withdrawal bleeds, deviations of a couple days or so -- with when they arrive and how long they last -- is common, even if up until now, or for a while, it hasn't been common for you.

And when they happen, it usually isn't about something that happened, just about all the subtle changes in our reproductive systems -- more or less of this hormone, or uterine lining, for instance -- or our whole bodies and lives -- like more or less sleep, changes to diet, illness or wellness, activity, etc.

So, ultimately, with a deviation of a day or so, I don't see any cause for concern or need to even look into this.
