Microgynon, bleeding constantly for how long?

I've recently started microgynon, but have to come off it again, due to migraines returning, causing blurred vision and an inability to process things I'm told (I used to have this as a child/early teen). Since I started (only a few weeks ago), I've been bleeding constantly. I'm really wondering how long, roughly, it can take for this to stop.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms that you describe could be attributed to the use of the hormonal contraceptive. If the diagnosis of migraine headaches has been confirmed, then you should consider discussing about the continuation of hormonal contraceptive use with your treating doctor/gynecologist (you may also consider stopping the hormonal contraceptive use). Do not ignore your symptoms. Visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further evaluation, clarification and assistance.
Take care.
