Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Which pill are you taking?
Did you have breakthrough bleeding the first month?
How many days did you have breakthrough bleeding this month? Thank you.
Some breakthrough bleeding when taking the pill is quite common. Stress increases the chance of breakthrough bleeding. Usually it's nothing to worry about and resolves itself over time.
I wouldn't be worried. If you get breakthrough bleeding that goes on for many days or weeks, then I would see your doctor. If the bleeding is a significant problem, then switching pills usually will take care of it. However, breakthrough bleeding that lasts only a day or a few days is usually nothing to worry about. Best wishes.
