Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you that you are probably just having breakthrough bleeding and not to worry. I always suggest a pregnancy test whenever there is unusual bleeding too. In most cases the bleeding will subside on its own within a few days. If not, call your doctor. Good luck! Dr B
