Best Answer

According to AskDocWeb, breakthrough bleeding is bleeding that occurs during the time that you are taking the active pills, that is, at times other than during the placebo pills. This can occur when you are becoming adjusted to taking the pills for the first time or if you have been off them for a time and are beginning them again. This is usually an adjustment situation and not serious.

Didnt miss any pill and took them on time and im still getting break through bleeding?

Breakthrough bleeding can be a side effect that can last up to 3 months or more. If you have been on birth control for at least 3 months and you still have breakthrough bleeding, you should consult your physician. Consistent breakthrough bleeding can be a sign that you may need a higher dosage of birth control pills. I have learned from physicians that increasing the dosage of the birth control helps regulate your menstrual cycle and eliminates breakthrough bleeding and therefore being more effectively protected from pregnancy.
