I have been taking the Pill (Cilest) for... Three weeks now. Well, I am on the third week now. I'm getting either odd Spotting or my period but that shouldn't be happening until after the third week is OVER! I am so confused right now.
I think it is either period, spotting or the fact taht I kinda did a lot of masturbating this week and maybe got a little to into it and damaged myself. Should I be panicking? Because I kind of am. o.O

A little bit of spotting, or even a period that happens at some time other than during the placebo week is actually quite common when first starting the pill and isn't anything to be concerned about. It's just your body adjusting, and it doesn't mean that your pill is not effective. Generally, you want to give yourself three cycles on any given pill formulation to let your body get used to it, but if you find after that that you're still spotting and don't want to deal with that, you can try a different type of pill to see if that helps.
