Your MBP is equipped with a mini display port output for video. If you're using the correct adapter (mini display port to DVI or VGA) which is required for whatever monitor you're using whether at the office or home, it should work.

As was pointed out, you may get a momentary blink of the monitor when attached (if it's turned on at the time) but only briefly not two or three times.

Constantly removing and attaching an external monitor via the adapter cable(s) is going to lead to the wearing out or bending of the very small pin connectors. If that's what you're doing, you could have already damaged the adapter or connector.

Suggest you first try a new cable and or adapter to see if that clears up the blinking. If that doesn't help, make an appointment with your local Apple store genius to have the machine looked at.

Regards.
