I've been on birth control for a year it two now , but I was recently off of it for a few months. I started my new pack after my last period like I was supposed to. I'm not supposed to start my period until next week. Well I went to the bathroom and there was a bit of blood in my panties, and when I wiped there was a bit of blood. That happened for a day or two and now it stopped. I'm actually pretty scared about it. I'm not having vaginal sex, but I do/have done stuff such as being fingered, and giving hand/blow job. I mean I know I can't get pregnant from the ejaculation from these activities, but it still always worried me a bit. I guess I'm asking why is the blood there? Why did it stop? Will I have my regular period?

Spotting or irregular bleeding is a fairly common side effect of the pill, especially when you're just starting to take it (or taking it again after a few months off). If it continues, you can check in with a healthcare provider about it, but for now I wouldn't be concerned.

Whether or not you'll have your regular period is impossible for anyone to predict.

I've noticed today that my blood is stringy-like. Is that normal too?

I realized my whole message didn't type. Lol! I meant to put "thank you I was worried :/, I've been in basically the same position."

colors_of_a_rubik_cube, that doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. Menstrual blood can have different consistencies, and sometimes it can be stringy.
