Pink spotting and cramps 2 days after switching from lutera to levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). Should I be worried?

No worries. Levora (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) has the same two hormones as Lutera but is about 50% stronger. About 30% of women will have some irregular bleeding when they switch birth control pills. Keep taking the pills as prescribed, the bleeding should improve.
