I'm on the pill and bleeding between periods. Will this stop?
updated about 3 years ago

Try this: If you just started the pill in the last few months, try to power through. This problem will most likely fix itself.

Also, make sure you are taking your pills at the same time each day and not skipping pills and then doubling up. These sorts of things can increase chances of spotting.

Still not working?

If you’ve been on the pill for a while and are taking it correctly, you might consider a new method (like the shot, the patch, or the ring), but also get checked for STIs and pregnancy, just to be sure those aren’t the reason for the bleeding.

Try a different method
