My girlfriend and I had protected sex on Friday night, but she forgot to take her pill on Saturday. It is Monday now and she is spotting. What's going on??

Hi Anon!

Some women spot when they miss a pill. If she did not make up her pill as she was supposed to, her risk of pregnancy is slightly raised and you and she need to use condoms for the next 7 days.
