I was taking Yaz birth control but my period was


Q: I was taking Yaz birth control but my period was coming twice a month so my doctor switched me to Seasonique. I've been on it for ten days and have severe bloatinf and cramps so I went back Shw prescribed me ortho tricyclen lo and I am just wondering if it is safe for me to just start the new pack from the beginning getting off of Seasonique. I have read that it is not smart and I should finish my pack but there is no way I can go through that for a whole three months of Seasonique cycle. Please help. Will I be safe ending Seasonque after ten days and starting tricyclen from the first pill today?
