In brief: Common Reaction

Probably ok.
Continue your pills & check a pregnancy test at the end of your pill pack. It is common to have break-through bleeding and cramping with a change in birth control pill type. If switching to a lower dose pill, it is usually safer to use condoms for the first 2 weeks. Take care.
