I am 20 years old I have been on birth control since I was 16. My old bc caused lots of breakthrough spotting so I switched to levora in order to stop this inconvenience. It worked but suddenly after 6 or more months of taking this medication I have had light spotting for nearly 2 weeks now. Any ideas of why this is happening now?
