Sometimes changing birth controls will cause break through bleeding. I think the best thing to do is to talk to your doctor on Monday.

Best wishes.

sound like the lexipro my with has this poblem after the doc swiched her from paxcil to lexipro in 1 week. so now she has discontinuation from the paxcil and bad effects from the lexipro. You will need to stop taking the lexipro but dont stop right away taper your self off the lexipro 5% at a time every 5 weeks till you are off this if you make the change to fast you will have even more problems
