Spotting With Seasonique

Seasonique™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a combined oral contraceptive that contains both an estrogen and a progestin. Although most people tolerate this birth control pill well, as with any medication, side effects are possible. A number of women have reported spotting with Seasonique.
Even though you will have fewer periods while taking Seasonique (only four periods per year), many women have breakthrough bleeding between periods while taking this form of contraception. In fact, breakthrough bleeding and spotting between periods are common side effects that have been reported with Seasonique. Spotting may be inconvenient and unpredictable.
If this particular problem occurs, keep taking the medication as usual. Contact your healthcare provider if the bleeding is heavy.
