Spotting while taking birth control.

I've taken the birth control pill for about 8 years, minus my three pregnancies. I have have had some spotting the last two days but am not due for my period about 4 more days. I have taken the pill very regularly this month with the exception of one night about 2 weeks ago when I threw up about 3-4 hours after taking the pill. I've never had spotting before my period so I am a little worried. What could be the cause of this or is this normal? Thanks!

Hello,
Bleeding which is pinkish or brownish in color and more like spotting rather than menstruation is implantation bleeding. This occurs just before the expected date of periods and could be associated with minor cramps. It could also be due to normal shedding of uterine lining (old menstrual blood) or an oncoming early period. But you should check up with a gynaecologist to rule out any vaginal infection or abnormality.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
