about 10-12 days ago i started a light bleeding it was mostly not there (spottting) i usually have major cramping during my period and i had cramping while i was spotting and my period hasn't bin very heavey latey so i figured it is just my period. But now it is like 10 or 12 days later and i still have cramping and the bleeding has gotter heavier starting about 2 days ago. i am on birth controll i take it when i wake up witch sortive changes each day but not by much (1-3 hrs). when the heavier bleeding started is when i should of started my period (according to my b/c pills) so i was spotting for ruffly a week before my period. could this be due to my birth controll pill and not taking them at the same time, and also i have doubbled up once this month on my pills. Or could i be pregnat or have bin and now misscarrying ?? I have also had a slight headache lately and loss of appitite.

Hi Mandi,

It is very common to have some spotting when you miss pills and double up. It does not happen all the time but there is a chance since you are fluctuating your hormone levels in your body. Have you taken a pregnancy test, just to be sure there is no chance of pregnancy?

There are many different reasons why some women have mid-cycle spotting even while on birth control. Some of the common reasons from About.com are:

Implantation Bleeding/Pregnancy
Hormonal changes
Starting, stopping, or missing oral contraceptives or estrogens
Low thyroid levels
IUDs occasionally cause slight spotting
Injury to the vagina from insertion of objects
Malignant cancers
Undiagnosed vaginal infections
Certain drugs, particularly anticoagulants Vaginal dryness
GYN procedures
Some women have spotting during ovulation, which is normal
If this is the first time this has occurred, try taking your pills at the same time each day for the next month and see if your spotting continues. If the spotting continues, you should seek medical attention. Does this help answer your question?
