I’m having heavy spotting or breakthrough bleeding, is my birth control working?

As uncomfortable and unwelcome as heavy spotting or breakthrough bleeding is, and if you’re taking your birth control as prescribed, your birth control is still working. This will typically happen when women are skipping periods or are starting a new type of continuous birth control. If this is still an issue for you after a couple of cycles/months, please let us know. Our medical team will do their best to find another birth control option for you.
