Patient :I have been taking Alesse for about two years now. Over the past couple of months I have been getting break through bleeding. I get my period about a week early while still taking the active pills. My period lasts about 2 weeks, but with extremely light flow. Do I need to switch over to a different, stronger pill or is it a sign of something else?
