Have bleeding during sex, prescribed loestrin 24. Can I start new loestrin without finishing last 2 pills?

I have been taking loestrin 24 for a couple of months and my doctor just prescribed loestrin 1.5 30 because I was experiencing bleeding during sex . I have two active pills left in my loestrin 24 pack. What would happen if I went ahead and started taking the new loestrin instead of finishing those last two pills? Would it be enough to keep me from bleeding by tomorrow night?

Thanks for posting your query.
Loestrin is female sex steroid, that has been started by your doctor to improve the vaginal epithelium health.
This medicine should be started after a per speculum examination of the vagina for any serious cause behind the bleeding.
You should take the whole strip of tablets and then take a holiday of one week before restarting the medicine. Stopping for two days in a row may not protect you from bleeding.
You should get assessed by a local gynecologist.
I hope this answers your query.
