In terms of word choice, "breakthrough bleeding" is bleeding when you expect the hormones in Birth Control to stop bleeding. On the other hand, "withdrawal bleeding" is what you have when you stop taking active pills -- whether temporarily, as during the pill-free interval, or when you quit the pill altogether. It's normal to have a withdrawal bleed after stopping the pill. You can expect a normal period in four to six weeks.
Breakthrough bleeding occurs when you stop taking BC pills. If it occurs while taking BC pills you will need to see your Doctor as the doseage may not be right for you.
It should take approximately one week.
If you just started taking the pill recently, breakthrough bleeding which is bleeding during the weeks that you are on active birth control, is normal. Do not stop taking the pill, keep going, this is normal and should clear up within 3 cycles.
