Hopefully I'm asking this in the right place. My doctor recently put me on Pirmella 1/35 (the generic for Ortho Novum), and I've been bleeding ever since I started it pretty much 2 months, except a week off after taking the placebos, then started again. Weird huh? So he said to take 2 pills a day for a week and call back to see what happened. So I took those for a week, and it almost stopped the bleeding, it's a very light spotting now. Told them that, and he said he will put me on Pirmella 1/50, and to take 2 of those a day for a week and call back as well. They said it was safe and all, but has anyone else had to do this?? What happens if this doesn't completely stop the bleeding? Are there any major side effects to this? I hasn't noticed any major ones when I doubled up the 1/35 dose.
