I have been taking birth control for almost a year

Patient: I have been taking birth control for almost a year. I have been spotting for two weeks should I bee worried?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Spotting, when one is on birth control, is a common side effect and nothing much to wor ry. Yet, you may have to get a pap smear done to rule out any cervical changes which can need further evaluation. Consider seeing your doctor if the spotting continues every time.Hope this helped.Regards
