Breakthrough bleeding is nothing special, it is same as menstrual bleeding but may vary in amount and in duration.This amount and duration depends on the surface area of endometrial tissue breakage or separated.Usually when the patient is on low dose bc the estrogen level is not sufficient to maintain the endometrial lining and breakage occurs and thus bleeding occurs.Estorgen dose has to be increased to stop this breakthrough bleeding.

Thanks for your response.
Pregnancy related complication must be excluded in any abnormal pattern of bleeding per vagina in a sexually active woman.There are so many causes other than pregnancy related complications like
1.hormonal imbalance
2.fibroid uterus
3.endometrial polyp
4.cervical polyp
5.cervical cancer
6.endometrial cancer
7.dysfunctional uterine bleeding
8.over stretch and strain
9.infection
etc.
