Spotting on pill? Endometriosis

My Gynaecologist told me to take 4 pill packets without a period (levlen ED) and I am now in my 3rd packet. Last night i noticed spotting and today its getting heavier, i haven't missed any pills, has this happened to anyone else?

I have been on the pill for years and this hasn't happened to me when i skip 1 period.
Thank you.

This is normal. It is break through bleeding. I would come off the pill for a couple of days and go back on them after about 3 days and start again. Some times breakthrough bleeding comes every 3 to 4 months. I was every 3 months for about a couple years then every 4 months for few years than nothing for 2 yrs. It just takes time for your body to adjust and this is normal.

Call your doctor or pharmacist if you feel this isn't normal for you. I can only speak from my experiences. Hope it helps.

Its happened to me. I blame the combo of getting older, endo, and hormonal inbalances. I just started the pill again after a few yrs of trying to conceive and I had spotting while on the regular pills and I am currently very crampy but no bleeding. Last month I had no real period, just spotting that started while taking the pill. it may take a bit for your body to adjust. Right now my GYN isn't concerned but we will see what happens to me next month.
