Is spotting on birth control normal?

Seeing spotting while taking birth control is totally normal.It's just your body getting use to the hormones you are now taking.My doctor told me you should see spotting or light bleeding for the first 3 months of taking birth control.

If you have already started spotting should you continue finishing your pack of birth control?

Yes you should continue your pack of pills even though you are spotting. You should never discontinue taking your birth control unless advised by your physician. If you stop taking your birth control you will lower the effectiveness of the birth control drastically and you will increase your chances of becoming pregnant. Spotting is a side effect caused by birth control. Spotting typically occurs when you are either starting birth control for the first time( spotting may last up to 3 months), spotting can occur if you do not take your birth control everyday at the same time, and it can occur if you use a certain medication, such as antibiotics.

If spotting occurs for two weeks should I stop taking the birth control or will the spotting stop?

When you start birth control it is not unlikely to have spotting or breakthrough bleeding. This is a side effect that can last up to 3 months or longer. You should not stop taking your birth control because you will actually mess up your cycle and when you will have your period. You will also experience more spotting or breakthrough bleeding if you stop now. The spotting will go away,however, you should visit your physician to consider changing the dosage of birth control. Spotting and breakthrough bleeding usually stops when switched to a higher dosage of birth control.

What if your girlfriend is late taking her birth control pills multiple days in a row?

If your girlfriend is late taking her birth control pills multiple days in a row there wouldn't be such a worry as her getting pregnant but she may start spotting because of the inconsistencies with the times of her taking the pills. The pills should be in her system by then. Unless, it's her very first pack of pills and she's in that first seven days. If that's the case, you guys should use backup protection to be safe.
