In brief: Pills help bleeding

Oral contraceptive pills may help regulate your cycle.
It is important to remember to take your pills daily as prescribed. If you miss tablets, you are more likely to experience undesired bleeding. If you are experiencing prolonged vaginal bleeding, you may try to double up on your ocps for 2-3days. If this does not help, you should visit your doctor.
