I have a questions about spotting. I've been on the pill (Marvelon) for somewhere in the 2 year range. This past month, I had spotting during the week 2 and week 3 of my pills. It wasn't heavy but it was enough to have to year a panty liner. There was also little bit of "pieces" (sorry I don't what they are called) like when I have my withdrawl bleed. The blood was mostly brown. Then it suddenly stopped and a few days later I started my withdrawl bleed (which feels "heavier" then usual).
I know that spotting is normal when you first start taking the pill, I had some when I started the pill (Alesse) the first time. But I never had any spotting with Marvelon during these last 2 years so I'm wondering what it means, if it means, anything that I'm having it now? And more importantly is there any chance my protection is compromised?
I take my pill 99% of the time within the same 15 minute timeframe (and if not, it's always within the same hour).
