BTB: You are describing what is referred to as breakthrough bleeding. This can happen with any ocp and may be related to other things going on in your life. If you have been on the same pill for a while and it has been working i would not change after 1 month of btb. If this is an ongoing problem there are strategies to resolve this that usually involve switching pills.
