I would say that your body is still getting used to the artificial hormones you are giving it. It bled only two days and then had a breakthrough bleeding because it hadn't finished. I would suggest that next time around your period will be normal. You usually have lighter periods while on the pill. If you are still having breakthroughs after three months, go back to your doctor and ask for a higher dosage pill and this should take care of it. Hello there. - You shouldn't have break through bleeding while on birth control hun. You only have break through bleeding when you stop taking Birth Control. Bleeding while on birth control can be caused by early pregnancy, break through Ovulation or because the doseage your on isn't high enough for you. I would see your doctor for a pregnancy blood test to rule out pregnancy. Take care.

With a conventional birth control pill, you will have a regular period.

If it lasts longer, or is very troublesome for you, contact your health care provider to see if changing pills might help.Occasionally you may start bleeding out of pattern though. If you have been taking the pill correctly, this bleeding isn't a sign that the pill "isn't working," "isn't strong enough to prevent pregnancy," or that your "body is rejecting it."Lastly, irregular bleeding can be a sign of infection. If you have a new partner, or haven't been tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea recently, see your health care provider.This could be due to pregnancy, UTI or the doseage no longer working for you.Most contraceptive pills induce hormone changes in your body that prevents the successful process of pregancy, the effects are done to the ovum after contraception and therefore does not disrupt the formation of the period itself.Yes or it could be UTI related or pregnancy related.
