Is it normal to spot on birth control pills?

Oct 13, 2011
If you have recently started using birth control pills, spotting or light bleeding may occur between periods. Usually, it takes time for your body to adjust to hormones in contraceptive pills. This usually happens during the first six months.

The other reason for spotting on the pill is the irregular use of the birth control pills, when you miss or take the pills incorrectly. In this case, it is recommended to take the pills every day at the same time.

There also can be the case that your birth control pills are not effective or you may have other underlying condition. Consult your health care provider to get tested.
