Is it normal?

Started taking birth control a little over a month ago, being careless i decided to have unprotected sex with my now ex. About two weeks ago i started spotting, i know that would be nomal but this isn't like normal spotting, it's kinda like being on my period but less painful and not as heavy. My breast's seem bigger and they're a tad sore. Should i just chalk all this up to side effects of taking birth control?

  • Are you still taking BC? Maybe its just your body getting used the BC, but I would test just to be sure you are not pregnant.

  • i would test if you dont get your period when you are suposed to but this sounds normal for your first month being on bc. when i first started mine i was sick and i bleed for like two weeks, my boobs hurt i though the same thing and that was a year ago. it will be better by month three

  • hormones changing, more than likely. just buy a cheap test and see if you are when it comes time to start again if it's not a little more normal. granted, bc pills really can change up your normal period into something totally different, so mos def get a test
