I have been on yaz for almost three months and just a week ago I started spotting for about 5 days. Before that I had forgotten to take a pill and took some late, probably the reason why I was spotting. For the past week I have been taking them on time and today I bled after intercourse, this has only happened once before about 4 months ago. Help is this due to the pill?

I would see your doctor; the symptoms you describe are abnormal.

Spotting would be explained by missing pills, but randomly bleeding after intercourse causes question. If it were from a physical abrasion or something of that type, then I would not worry. However if it was not, I would really suggest seeing your doctor.
