Missing period while on the pill, should I worry?
I have been on the pill for almost a year now and have always been regular, but this month I am spotting yet having all my lovely pms symptoms. Should I worry?
I HIGHLY doubt it's pregnancy? any thoughts?

I wouldn't be worried, Irregular periods while on birth control is completely normal, even if it's been regular so far.

It's normal, if you read up on your birth control information it'll tell you so. I always had normal periods while on the pill, until my sixth month. I missed it that
month, and the next few months were very light and spotty. I'm not pregnant, it's just the pill. Hope I helped. :)

the pill is only 99% effective with perfect use (taken at the SAME time EVERY day). I would take a pregnancy test just to be safe, but it could also be that your pill
isn't working anymore and needs to be switched to a different dosage, especially if you have been on it for over 2 years
