Does doubling up on birth control actually help stop spotting or will it make it worse? If it will help should I take 2 pills at once or spread it out

In brief: Just started?

Break thru bleeding is common on the first package of pills or any time you miss pills or take them late.
If you are taking them at the same time every day and have been on them for more than 2 months and are still having breakthrough bleeding you should talk to your doctor. This can be a sign of an infection or you could need a different pill.
