Hey guys,

I just finished the placebo week of my last pill pack on Sunday and started my new pill pack. Typically, my period starts on Wednesday morning of my placebo week and finishes on Sunday night/Monday morning. This time, however, I've experienced light, brownish spotting even up until this morning, 3 days into my new pack.

My withdrawal bleed was a normal amount, but it started later on Wednesday than usual. The last time I had sex was a month ago (during my last placebo week) and a condom was used at all times. Is there any concern for pregnancy from spotting a little longer than usual if the withdrawal bleed was in all other ways normal?

There's a lot of variation in what withdrawal bleeds can look like; more spotting than you're used to doesn't sound like a cause for concern.
