I had my period about 3 weeks ago and three days after I had spotting that was dark so I looked it up and saw that it was completely normal. Then this morning I'm spotting again but it's a lighter pink. I am on the pill but have been taking it regularly and never have this kind of problem. However, I missed a couple pills right after my period and had unprotected sex. Is this normal to spot twice in one month?
Symptoms are hard to decipher, so the only way to know if you are pregnant or not is by taking a pregnancy test. The spotting could easily be a reaction to the hormones in the pill, but it could also be pregnancy. If you are worried, take a home pregnancy test 2 weeks after the sexual encounter.
