So you've been taking your pills correctly for a month? Is this your first month taking the pills?

Spotting is very common for women who just started using birth control pills. If this spotting is occuring during your placebo week then its likely your period. If you are worried, then you can take a pregnancy test if it has been more than 2 weeks since you had sex.
