Irregular bleeding
I had a period on time this month, though it was lighter than usual and no pain.
Now suddenly in the middle of my cycle I am bleeding very badly with major cramps.
I have been on Loette for a year now?

very concerned

You are having a breakthrough bleed. It sounds like this is the first time it has happened. You could wait and see what happens next month. If it recurs, you may have to change to a higher dose pill.
