Call your gyn: It is better to go until the end of the pack if it is not heavy and often times your gyn can add some low dose hormones for a short time or switch u to a different pill, it is very common to have some the first 1-2 months and usually it resolves by the 3rd month, u may need a stronger pill if u want to stay on them please discuss with your gyn.
