Hi There,

I have looked up other topics on what is happening to me, and there is one similar, however, I just want to make sure...

I have been on birth control for about 6 years, and have had very little issues with it until this year.

I have been experiencing some odd spotting within the last year, which is concerning.

My current spotting issue is that, my period is due tomorrow. I NEVER get it early and NEVER get it late, but yet, today I noticed some thick brown spotting.

My period never starts out like this, and as I mentioned is never early. I have freaked myself out by doing some research on spotting close to your period's due date.

I took 2 of my pills a few hour late last week (about 9 hours late). So I'm thinking that this is maybe my body's reaction to the late pill taking, however, do you think this means I will not get my period on the regular day I do?

I did have unprotected sex, though my boyfriend did not cum inside me. I didn't think the risk of pregnancy was large at all, since my pill wasn't more than 12 hours late.

What are your thoughts on this? I really hope it's not "implantation" bleeding, which it probably isn't, but any opinions on if I should get my period as normal this month?

I guess if I dont get any answers tonight, I'll be able to come back and tell you guys myself if it comes tomorrow, haha.

Even when we're used to our periods being uber-regular, they can still be a little off every once in a while. So, having a period start a day early is not a big deal at all.

It sounds like you've been taking the pill as directed, so there's also no reason to worry about pregnancy.
