when I changed pills in the past I had some bleeding in between - you should probably call your doctor and let them know... good luck

I take ortho-lo too, I just posted on here today, my period ended nine days ago and now I have significant spotting....I'm scared/nervous too. I have not missed any pills but my boyfriend and I have unprotected sex but I do make him pull back before climax. The only thing I can guess is that the hormones are too low for you and bleeding seems to be a side effect.
