I just got over my withdrawal bleed. I usually get them on Thursday during my placebo week but this one came early and I started spotting/cramping on Wednesday. The flow on Thursday and Friday were not as heavy as they usually are and I only soiled one pad each day, when I normally go trough a few. I also didn't hav any red blood, it was all brown/maroon with lots of clots in it. Since I usually have a heavy flow with lots of fresh red blood the second day of the bleed and didn't this time, is this something to worry about? Should I be worried about any pregnancy risk?

Based on the information we've given you in the past, and the articles you've read on the site, do you think you've actually had a pregnancy risk?

I don't really think so. I've been taking my pills as planned and on time, I just got nervous when I saw such a strange bleed. Is the bleed that I experienced normal for someone on bcp?

Yep, all kinds on bleeding and spotting are common on bcp, and it's common for them to vary from time to time. Even without being on bcp, it's common to experience brown and maroon blood - as darker blood and brown blood are just older, and this darker blood can be there for a whole period, or in your case, a whole withdrawal bleed.
