That is normal. I spot every once in awhile.

I’ve been on the same brand of BCP for 10 years and last spring I ended up spotting a lot.  Told my gyno at my appt last year and he said totally normal, not to worry about it.

I was on the pill (Ortho Cyclen) for about 7-8 years when I started consistently spotting between periods. My doc switched me to Tri-Cyclen and that didn’t fix the problem. So after several months of frustration, I just went off the pill.

I was on orthotricyclin and had severe subdermal brusing (Not the skin was brusing, the muscle underneath was) and got switched off of it. The first couple months I was on it, I spotted.

I switched to Lo’Ovral (Which I had been on before) and I have only had spotting once when I bruised my cervix due to over exerting myself with abdominal workouts.

I wouldn’t be too worried about it, provided it’s light and it isn’t like a full on period. My spotting lasted about a week, and I haven’t seen it since.
