Is break-thru-bleeding normal when I start or change my method of hormonal birth control?

Question:  I switched birth controls 3 months ago and now I had my period for almost 2 weeks mid pill cycle and now I am getting it every other day. It goes away then comes back. I don’t know what it is

Answer:  Break-thru-bleeding is nothing to worry about during the first three (3) months on the pill, if you change from one pill to another, if you miss a pill, or if you are late taking a pill.  If the bleeding lasts from more than 3 cycles, please call 440-352-0608 and make an appointment with the nurse.
