No: First check a pregnancy test as this a common cause of bleeding on the pill. Second make an appointment with your physician about the bleeding. You probably just need a different pill or different dose, but I tell my patients to finish out their current pack and transition to the new birth control so they don't end up pregnant. ...Read more
