I'm still here if you have more question
how will this affect the withdrawal bleed?
If you take less of the pills you will more than likely have less of the withdrawal bleed - but you do not want to do this every month - the progesterone is MEANT to help you from getting the endometrial lining from getting too thick so that you do not develop a cancer of the uterus.

thankyou very much

should i get rid of the bloated feeling when i restart the white tablets?
Yes it will - as you should then be at the end of your period - and hence this will help since your period should be over or close to being over and hence what gives you these symptoms.
