Thank you for your query.

Femcon Fe will cause breakthrough bleeding if taken continuously. It is better to discuss with your gynaecologist who shall top it with some progesterone preparations to stop the breakthrough bleeding.

Cefzil is an antibiotic and should not cause breakthrough bleeding. You have not mentioned the reason why your daughter is taking an antibiotic.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.
