I switched from Ocella (Yasmin) to Safyral because I continued to have breakthrough bleeding for 2 weeks. I have been on Safyral for a few days and I am still having breakthrough bleeding. I am just wondering about how long this will last and is there anything I can do to make it go away faster?

I have the same problem but mine is for two weeks after my period . I'm curious to know. And I've been on this medicine for 4 months... I was on Yasmin..switched to Ocella... changed to Reclipsen and now I'm on Safyral. I never had problems with the others until I got on this.. I'm sorry ur having the same problem too
