Our expert says:
It may be that the contraceptive you use does not have high enough esterogen levels. Breakthrough bleeds can also be caused by the contraceptive not being absorbed well, due to other medication you use, or when you have diarrhoea etc. Pains in the side can be caused by infections or STD's or urinary tract infection. Discuss with your doctor (preferably a gyne). A proper gyne examination, with papsmear, sonar, and urine test may be needed to try and identify the cause of the bleeds and the pain.
