Postnatal irregular bleeding on the pill

My daughter is 8 1/2 weeks and I went back on the pill for contraceptive reasons at 6 1/2 weeks. I'm not breast feeding so am on mercilon. I hadn't experienced any bleeding since around 4 weeks but am now 2 weeks into my pill pack and started bleeding today when I still have a week to go before my break and expected 'period' Did anyone else experience this irregular bleed? Is it normal?! Not sure if I should talk to gp or just leave it for now x

    Hi married, I met my HV on mon and she was asking me all the routine q's including about my bleeding (had daughter 3.5 weeks ago) which has pretty much stopped - she then warned me it was not unusual for it to start again even in a few weeks time, and as long as not really really heavy or passing clots was normal. I don't know what effect starting the pill would have though, so might be worth ringing gp (or HV) just to chat about it xxx

    Hi it isnt unusual for bleeding to occur 10 weeks or so post birth so would think the bleed is related to that rather than being a period as such
