Welcome to ehealthforum

Birth control pills cause menstrual irregularity and spotting.How long have you been taking these pills? Is this the first time while on pill you are experiencing this?Do you have any other side effects? Are you taking the pills regularly? The history provided is incomplete and also I am not examining you so it is very difficult to comment.
Weight Loss powders and diets can cause some changes.Kindly visit your Healthcare Provider for evaluation.

Take Care!
