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.

Hi, I've been on ovranette for about four years as my dr thinks that my periods were causing my epileptic seizures, over the last few weeks I've had some bleeding every few days. I don't follow the four week cycle, I'm prescribed the pill for every day without a seven day break so why am I bleeding?

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

Hi me and my bf had unprotected sex last month before my period and due to my work schedule I wasn t able to visit the clinic until the following Monday which was the fifth day afterwards after I took the pill I had sore breast, hot flashes and lower back pain then I got what I thought was my period which was extremely lighter then normal and brown. Usually my period last about 6or 7 days this last time it was about 4 to 5 pasty, dark brown, and some days wouldn t bleed at all then spot the next. I took a test (a cheap 99 cent store one) and it said negative. This month it s time for me to have my period again and I have no signs of it coming. No bloating, salt craving, mood swing, sharp pains...nothing. I m not pregnant right??
