Sometimes it takes about 6 months or more for your body to adjust to the hormones.  Since you are taking them for longer than the prescribed monthly basis, you are likely to get breakthrough bleeding.  Any time you take pills for longer than a month, there is a risk of spotting and breakthrough bleeding.

I was the same with Yaz. For me it’s because there was not enough estrogen to hold off my period until I was done the pill pack.

You can do the 4 periods a year on any pill as long as the daily pills are the same, just talk to your doctor. I’m now on Ortho .5/35 (i think that’s what it’s called?), it’s higher dose and I only get four periods a year… yeaaah boyee!

What about switching to one that’s designed for it? I’m taking seasonique now (used to be seasonale) and while in the beginning there’s a little break through, it does stop. The normal packs taper off in the hormones, while these don’t.

I haven’t had a period since I started Yaz – just a little spotting the 3rd month.  Personally, I like it!

I’d talk to your doctor about switching to a different pill – there are a lot out there and not every pill works well with every body!
