In the first 3 months of cyclessa use, there can be irregular vaginal bleeding ( this may be spotting or heavy breakthrough bleeding). This is probably related to lower doses of hormones as compared to other pills.
This bleeding usually doesnot last longer than a week. As you bleeding has continued longer than a week, you should consult your gynecologist for evaluation. Prolonged bleeding may cause anemia & increased chances of infection. Continue taking your pills in the meanwhile.
