Doctor: HelloThanks for the queryThere is no need to stop the pills. You can continue the same as scheduled. There is no need to use additional contraception. It should only be used when you miss a pill from the schedule. In the case of easy bleeding see your doctor soon. We may need to add on other hormonal pills to stop the bleeding. Do not discontinue on your own, doing this can lead to withdrawal or breakthrough bleeding.Hope this helpsRegards
