I was wondering if this was a sign of pregnancy or just a result of going off the pill?

Hi, I went off the pill after being on it for 6 months about a month ago, and have been trying for another baby for a month..I got my periods when i first went off it and im not due for another 2 weeks or so but i have gotten really ligt bleeding yesterday and today, nothing bad just very light one-off sort of bleeds..very different to what my period would be..I was wondering if this was a sign of pregnancy/miscarriage or just a result of going off the pill?

Answer: Hi, This may be from hormonal changes from coming off the pill. Wait until you have missed a period and then check if you are pregnant. Best wishes, Alex
