I'm just wondering if there's an average time period for spotting to occur after taking EC? I'm also on BC and I've read on the info that EC would make the "period" (withdrawal bleeding days) wonky, and I'm just wondering if it's a normal side-effect for the "period" to occur way before the placebo week or should I consult a dr?
Thanks for any help.

Yep, it's a common side-effect of EC to throw your period or withdrawal bleed out of whack for a while, so any unusual bleeding isn't anything to be concerned about at this point.
