Dear Bug
How long have you been using Nordette ? It may take a month or 3 before the breakthrough bleeds stop on any new pill you start using. There is not much else that you can do except to ask your doctor to change you to a pill with higher esterogen and lower progesterone in it (Femodene?).
Skipping pills, not taking the pill on the same time every day, smoking, and taking certain medications and herbal supplements are common causes of breakthrough bleeding.
