Am I on my period again or spotting??

I ended my period 2 days ago and this morning I woke up with slight bleeding. I'm on birth control and I take it continuously so I just skip the sugar pills. I had sex the day I finished my period but I highly doubt that I'm pregnant so why am I bleeding again ?

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

The bleeding that you are having can be due to hormonal changes occurring in the body due to skipping of the sugar pills. It should become better in a few days. If it persists then get an evaluation done from a gynecologist.

If there is any history of unprotected intercourse then pregnancy due to birth control failure is also a possibility.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and regards.
