Abnormal bleeding
I was using Minerva and last month I started Yasmin. I got my period on the 15th March, it lasted about 4-5 days and ended, a day later I started bleeding. I thought it might be finishing off. It's now the 3rd April, 2 weeks later and I am still bleeding, not very heavy, light to medium flow. What is wrong?

Dear Bev
You are getting breakthrough bleeds - the Yasmin may be too light for you. Ask your doctor to relook the kind of contraceptive you are using.
