So last week I started getting some spotting even though I am between periods. It has gotten heavier since then, although that's relative (it still hasn't reached the point where I need a pantyliner, I just notice it when I wipe after using the toilet.) It had been just brown discharge up until today, when it first started to look a little bloody.

I'm worried because I've been on the pill for over 7 years and have not experienced breakthrough bleeding before. For what it's worth, I haven't had any missed pills recently or any changes to my pill-taking routine. I should start my period about one week from today.

I have an appointment with my gynecologist for my annual exam on December 4--should I wait for that appointment or try to see her sooner? Also, should I be as worried as I am?? I've been preoccupied with this all day because it's not something I've been through before!

Any advice is apprciated. Thanks.
