Patient

Q: Type your question here...i'm worried i may be pregnant as my period is very light compared to normal, i'm on microgynon but this has never happened before. It normally starts off pretty heavy for the first 3 days but I've had hardly any bleeding. When I wipe there is blood on the tissue but it's very light, and seems to be mixed with a bit of discharge. I have been on the pill for 10 years and this has never happened before. I have taken all my pills correctly, never missed any and took them at the same time, but I took my last 2 packs back to back to miss out my last period for a special occasion, have done this before though and my period has never changed. Is this normal to suddenly have a light period after so long of having them regular?
