Brown Spotting around time of ovulation and forgot my pills

About 10-11 days ago I got af on time. My cycle is very regular, 30 days and I am on the pill & have been for 4 years. Yesterday afternoon I started spotting very little, a light brown discharge, I didn't think anything of it but today it was a little bit heavier. I have never spotted from ovulating before so I don't know if that is what it is from or not. I went away the last 2 days and forgot my pills therefore I missed two pills two days in a row and had unprotected sex in that time. Please let me know what you think this is!

Welcome to ehealthforum

If you forgot the pills it was not a good idea to have unprotected intercourse as chances of pregnancy are possible.It seems that the discharge which you are having right now is due to the hormonal fluctuation due to the missed pills.
If the bleeding becomes heavy consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
