Birth control pill bleeding

Hi, I hope someone may be able to give some clues here...

My girlfriend started taking birth control pills (microgynon) about two months ago and ever since she has been bleeding every day.

It's not the first time she has been on these pills and her doctor said this can happen but is a little confused that she has been bleeding for so long so is sending her for blood tests.

Is this normal? We are both understandably getting frustrated!

She took the morning after pill (levonelle one step 1500mg) before starting the course of birth control pills. Could it be something to do with this?

Re: Birth control pill bleeding

I bleed every single day whenever I go on the pill (Levlen ED for me), though not heavily.

When I tried (very briefly) Micro whatever it's called, I bled much heavier, still everyday. I just think the pill doesn't work for everyone, and it's not the same each time you take it either.
