Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Novelon is a brand name of menstrual irregularities as side effect.
Irregular bleeding like inter-menstrual bleeding or spotting is one of them.
It can occur at any time in the usage period.
Usually it will subside soon without need of medication.
But if the bleeding continues better to consult your doctor once.
She can give you tablets like antifibrinolytics or additional dose of hormones to stop the bleeding.
Meanwhile you can continue taking novelon.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,
Thanks for the query.

As you are having continuous bleeding for 10 days, better to consult your gynecologist and take medicine to stop the bleeding.
As this is a common side effect of contraceptive pills, no need to stop at present.
Continue the tablets as usual. Possibly the bleeding may not recur in next months.
If same thing repeats in next month also, with your doctor's advice you can change the brand of contraceptive pills or can go for hormonal injections.

Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.
