Should breakthrough bleeding on Aviane be this long?

A: 1 Sep 2011 Low-dose birth control pills often have the side-effect of breakthrough bleeding as you described (I experienced this with Ortho-Tri-Cyclen lo and Yaz). Three months is not a lot of time for your body to get used to a new birth control pill - in fact, it can take up to a year for your body to adapt. However, three weeks of bleeding is rather excessive. I''d go back to my OBGYN and seek advice, and perhaps try another type of pill (Aviane is the lowest dose birth control out there). There are many to choose from, like Ortho-Tri-Cyclen lo, Yaz, Yasmine, Seasonal, and others that your OBGYN can recommend. Hope your problem clears up!
