    I was on microgynon 30 for 3 months with no side effects what so ever, they were perfect besides not 100% dealing with cramps. After explaining this to my nurse she changed my birth control over to Loestrin 20, which has been hell! constantly felt sick, faint, tired, had horrendous cramps then a week into taking it I began bleeding. The bleeding is causing me horrible pain and obiously is VERY ANNOYING! After going back to the nurse and insisting I be changed back to microgynon 30, im still bleeding and in a bunch of pain but its only 2 days in so I get thats normal.
    Does anyone know if the transition back to my original pill will stop the bleeding? and if so, how long do you reckon it will be?

    Thanks in advance!

    Unfortunately you may have to wait until your break week for it to sort itself out, would give it at least a week at the minimum. If you were fine on it originally, odds are that you should be back to fine on it in a bit so the bleeding should stop.
