Levlen is often prescribed for irregular menstrual cycles. It is common to have irregular vaginal bleeding or breakthrough bleeding while on Levlen between your periods. Irregular vaginal bleeding may stop after your body has adjusted to LEVLEN which may be after about 3 cycles.Brevicon can also cause breakthrough bleeding. Illness, medication, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal changes, stress or rapid variations in weight, disorders affecting the thyroid gland all can lead to irregular menstrual cycles. Take a balanced diet and a healthy meal. Talk to your gynecologist before stopping the pills. I hope it helps.
Best of luck and kind regards!
Thank you for your reply. In essence, how long should I give it on Brevicon,as I have now had breakthrough bleeding for about 5 weeks, with no signs of it getting any better. I have been on Brevicon for only one week, should I wait until the end of this pack at least before seeing my doctor again? I am very tempted just to stop taking birth control totally as I am tired of this problem. thanks,.
