so i take my birth control pill everyday on time and i am not on any medications that might decrease its ineffectiveness. i had intercourse for the first time in 3 1/2 months a few days later i noticed very light slightly brownish discharge that i only saw one time when i went to the bathroom..2 days later i saw the tiniest looking smidgen if that of a pinky discharge...i mean i would have not noticed if i wasnt looking because i was just nervous about the discharge from a few days before...does this mean my pill isnt working?! i have not missed it or anything but i am nervous!

Spotting can be a side effect of taking the pill, but it doesn't indicate that the pill isn't working.
