    Yes this is totally normal from what I've been reading, there might be light spotting until her system gets used to the new type of hormones

    That's normal. So long as she's taken it correctly and not missed any pills, I don't think it's any cause to worry.

    Give it a few months for her body to adjust to hte new pills. If she's still spotting after that, then she can talk to her doctor about switching to a different pill.
