Spotting about ten days before period

Hi!  I am on ortho trycln and have been for many years.  Last night, I noticied some light menstral blood and some light spotting today.  Should I be worried?  Is this normal? I don't think I am pregnant (or at least hope that I am not), but am sexually active in a monogumus relationship.

any guidance that you might help would be great?

hey there. i was orthotri-cyclen lo for years. I quit for 6 months and went back on it a year ago. I have experience "break-through bleeding" and "spotting" for the past year since I have been back on it. My gyno just changed me to LoEstrin 1.5 which has more hormones in it.  She said sometimes our bodies build up almost a "tolerance" to BC. Maybe you should talk to your doc about a different BC....
