The onset of breakthrough bleeding is usually between 3-7 days after stopping the treatment. If you do not get it within this period, you should ask your doctor for an opinion. This could mean a pregnancy, inadequate dosage or other medications interfering with the treatment. also, the body's response to hormonal withdrawal can vary from time to time and it depends on a lot other factors like stress, weight changes, varying hormone levels in the two situations and so on. Please consult your doctor for further suggestions. Take care.
