Missed birth control for 3 days and now I'm spotting
Patient :I missed my birth control pills for 3 days. I tried to catch them up by taking a pill during the day then another that very same night until I became back on track with the pills. Now I have light bleeding that is coming and going when I wipe myself throughout the day and it has been going on for two days, while I've been catching up on the pills. I'm afraid because I have been having unprotected sex during these times so I don't know if this is spotting blood or blood from taking too many pills at once?
