Hello, I started taking Microgynon 30, im starting week 3 and i am still bleeding everyday. Furthermore, there was bloody yesterday when i was intimate with my boyfriend so i just wanted to see if im on the wrong pill

Your body is not accepting the pill unfortunately.

You likely will need to switch to low estradiol containing pill or to a progesterone only contraceptive to stop the bleeding.
