Hello. I recently went to my doctor to switch birth controls because I was on Sprintec-28 day and it was giving me cramps when I was on my period. Well, the birth control she recommended was too pricey for me. So instead she told me to continue with the Sprintec-28 day, but just skip the "sugar" pills and start my new pack when I ran out of the actual hormone pills. Well I am now on my second month of doing so and ever since I skipped those "sugar" pills, I have been spotting! Every day. Some days its heavier than others. It had been about 2 weeks now. I am wondering how long I will keep spotting? Is this normal to be spotting for this long? How can I make it stop? Thank you! Smile
