So my girlfriend has been taking birth control for nearly


Q: So my girlfriend has been taking birth control for nearly a year and haven't experienced any problems. the only problem she experienced was her period staying longer than usual which caused her to switch brands. I guess you can say she's been on the new brand for 5 months. The last time me and my girlfriend were sexually active was basically a week ago and her period was supposed to come 2 days ago (will be 3 if it doesn't come today) and it hasn't. She takes her pills regularly and never misses a day. today she told me when she went to pee that she saw a very very minuscule amount of blood. could this be a sign of her period approaching? should i be worried?
