I’m experiencing spotting or having heavy breakthrough bleeding, is my contraceptive pill still working?

If you are experiencing spotting or breakthrough bleeding while on the contraceptive pill, don’t worry your pill is still effective, as long as you are taking it as prescribed. We understand that spotting can be annoying and unpleasant. It is more likely to occur when skipping periods or when starting a new type of birth control.

However, if it continues, please contact your assigned Partner Doctor through our Customer Care Team at, and they will do their best to find a contraceptive pill that works better for your body.

Contro does not provide medical advice. All the above information has been verified and checked by our Partner Doctors.
