No, do not discontinue using it! Where do guys get off answering questions about things they know nothing about? Geez.

It's completely normal to have irregular bleeding when you're first starting a pill, any pill. If you would have read the package insert, you will see it listed among the side effects. It's called breakthrough bleeding or spotting (depending on how much there is).

There's nothing to worry about. What you need to understand about the pill is that you're putting fake hormones into your body and your body needs a chance to adjust. That can take anywhere from a month to two to three or more. I don't know why so many girls freak out about these things when they first start a pill, I don't know why they expect it all to be wine and roses from the get-go. That's just not realistic, when you're dealing with these kind of chemicals.

I know it's frustrating but that's part of what you have to put up with when you first start taking the pill. It can either be really easy with no problems at all or it can be really bad with problems left right and center all the time. Or something in between. It just depends on how your body reacts to the hormones.

I don't think you'll necessarily bleed the entire time. I think it's normal to expect to have some of that irregular bleeding in the beginning. Some women have said they have a near constant discharge that is kind of brown or something, which is actually more spotting than breakthrough bleeding, and that lasts for a while. I really don't know how long it will last for you but I don't think it would be for 2 to 3 months.

If it does last that long, then you might need to switch to a higher dose pill. It's the lower dose pills that cause breakthrough bleeding more often because the hormone level isn't high enough to keep the uterine lining from shedding prematurely.
