I take the contraceptive pill Levest and have just finished

Resolved Question:

I take the contraceptive pill Levest and have just finished my pill-free week but have had no bleeding. Last month my bleeding did not start until 7 days after the last pill in the pack and I only had one day of what I would consider proper bleeding followed by several days of just very dark and fairly dry discharge. I'm not sure if I should be concerned about this or not and if I should make an appointment with my GP.
