Break Through Bleeding Heavier, Needs to stop!


Q: Hello! I was taking birth control pills since August. On Sunday, I switched over to a new one after finishing the previous pack of a different kind. I was having break through bleeding and my doctor last week had switched me to a higher dosage. But its not working. Its gotten heavier and I need it cleared up by next Saturday. I still do have a pack of Birth control pills but they were the old kind I was on. Is it possible to take the old kind and this new, but different kind together to get it to stop?

Symptoms:  Break-threw bleeding, bloating, little cramps
