Breakthrough bleeding and discharge while on the pill
Patient : I have been on birth control pills for several years. A few days ago I had a little bit of spotting one week before I'm supposed to start my period. This has never happened to me before. I also had more vaginal discharge than normal. I did some research and read inline that it's normal when you first start birth control but this isn't the case for me and I have not missed any pills or taken them late.
