A 33-year-old female asked:

On the mini pill, does irregular bleeding subside with time? i just started my second bleed, one week after the first one finished, and am not happy.

It varies: Bleeding patterns vary on Progesterone only pills. Some have no bleeding at all. Others bleed randomly. It may get better over time and it may not. Consider another method if you are not happy with the bleeding pattern.
