Patient : Dear Doctor. I have been taking Mercilon for about 3 months now. The first month I had no problems and then I got my period as planned. I began taking the pill again after 7 days. I was then put on antibiotics the second month because of a lot of dental surgery I had done. I began to get spotting at the end of the month which has gotten increasingly worse. I researched it on the internet and it said my body needed time to adjust to the hormone change. So I continued the next packet without the 7 day gap. I am now considering just going off the pill and inducing a period and restarting again because the spotting is really annoying and means I have to wear a tampon everyday. Also I had sex about a week ago and now my friends are telling me that I could be pregnant, I am seriously worried!
