In brief: Good

add back estrogen is effective at helping with breakthrough bleeding that occurs with the majority of women using progesterone only birth control.
It almost always lessens the bleeding but does not usually cure the problem. Most women will experience recurrent spotting after stopping the supplemental estrogen. However, most women will eventually stop the spotting with no treatment at all, patience
