1 doctor agrees

In brief: It depends

The best option 4 stopping breakthrough bleeding(btb) depends on the underlying cause.
4 example, if u use birth control pills & frequently miss doses, u may have btb. In this case, perhaps a patch, an iud or an Implanon would be good options. If your issues w/ abnormal bleeding r related 2 thyroid dysfunction, weight problems, bleeding disorders, etc. This would be addressed differently. C ur md.
