Question
dear dr norman,

lately, I switched from yasmin to marvelon cuz I started having breaking through with yasmin...the breaking through stopped with marvelon but I want to stop marevelon cuz it gave me other terrible side effects...if I go back to yasmin now is there a possibility that I will have breaking through bleeding again with yasmin?

thx,
lama

Answer
Yes, since you had breakthrough bleeding before with yasmin, there is a chance you would have it again.  There are many different brands of birth control, most with small differences.  I would talk to your doctor about the side effects you're having with marvelon, and hopefully you can find a pill that doesn't cause any side effects for you.
