Spotting
May 9, 2006
Hey everyone,

I'm on my 3rd month of Microgestin Fe 1/20 after switching from OTC Lo, and I had a question about side effects....

I have never experienced any spotting before on birth control, and today I noticed I have a bit of pink/brown discharge....how long does spotting generally last? Shouldn't my body be adjusted to the new brand of pill by now? I've had a lot of side effects with this brand, and it's disconcerting because I never had side effects with OTC Lo. Does my body just need more time to adjust to the change?

Spotting usually is just a one-time thing, but can last for several weeks/months. Some women will spot once in awhile after using a brand of birth control for years; it just happens. It's nothing to be concerned about unless it continues to happen (and even then, it's more of an inconvenience than a "concern."
