Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you were sexually active (without additional protection) during the first 2-3 weeks after starting with the birth control pills, chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely (as these pills take about 2-3 weeks to start giving you effective protection). The spotting/bleeding during midcycle could also be attributed to probable breakthrough bleeding (common side effect of hormonal contraceptive pills) or even implantation bleeding (as a result of pregnancy). You should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for thorough evaluation and assistance. If pregnancy is suspected (as suggested by symptoms of spotting, altered periods, headache, increased sleep, weight gain), go ahead with getting examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be needed to look for the underlying cause. Treatment as appropriate would be started to help you (based on examination findings and investigation results). Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Be in regular follow-up and monitoring of your treating gynecologist/obstetrician and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately.
Take care.
