Hello, I've been taking the same pill brand for two years and I experienced withrawal bleed on my first box ever, and whenever I missed a pill or two on the same month.

However, this month I've not missed one pill. Not even a late pill, and I experienced spotting for two days and today it seems like a light period, but a period nevertheless.

I'm still 2 weeks due my real period, I'm worried this might mean my pills are not working properly or something. I'm not stressed, I'm not in medication of any kind and I don't feel I have an infection.

I've had sex multiple times since this started happening (the spotting) only relying on the bcp, I'm scared this might possess a pregnancy risk now that it got heavier [Frown] Help please, is this normal?

EDIT: I need to know if I have to continue taking the remainder of the pills as usual or stop.

Some spotting on occasion, even if you're taking the pill as directed, is not a big deal. Please continue to take your pills as you normally would.

Thanks for the quick reply, I'm concerned because it already looks and feels like a period, not spotting [Frown]
