Vaginal spotting on the pillyes, you can have some spotting while on the pill. It is actually one of the side effects of many different pills. Look at the side effects of the particular pill you are taking. Also you could have some spotting if you are not taking your pill at the same time each day. Pregnancy is very unlikely but is possible because there is implantation bleeding when pregnancy occurs sometimes. Seek medical advice if you continue to have a problem. Don't be affraid or embarassed.

Yes, although it could indicate pregnancy or a problem. Here is some advice from others:

  • I'm currently on Birth Control; and I have had some spotting. However, since it is possible to get pregnant while on birth control I would suggest that you get a pregnancy test just to be sure.
  • Yes. It is possible to have vaginal spotting especially if you are new to the pill. Your body may be adjusting to the change in hormones. It is important that you notify your doctor because this pill may not be the right pill for you or you may be pregnant.
  • I was on Depo-Provera and I had spotting in the beginning. I also had spotting when I was on the pill a few years back. However, now that I've been on Depo-Provera for a while, I do not have any periods or spotting.
  • Yes, it is even more likely to happen while on birth control. Let your GYN know and keep track. If it becomes more frequent or heavier then it might be time to give him another call.
