    Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums =)

    I've been on Nortrel birth control for about 2 years. Recently (as in 2 months ago and right now) I've had spotting for about the entire week before my period. It's usually always brown (old blood, correct?) I was just wondering if this is normal, spotting? I've never spotted before, so the first time I did I really freaked out. My doctor told me not to worry about it but I'm still wondering why I'm spotting now, when I never have before. Am I just worrying about nothing?

    Re: Spotting

    I'm having the same problem. I've been brown spotting for the last week and I'm due to have my period on Wednesday.

    I just changed to a new BCP this month so not sure if its related but the last BCP I didn't have this problem. I was on Levlen for the last 4 months and have just moved to Diane 35 a couple of weeks ago.

    I sure hope this doesn't continue and hope its just part of the 3 month adjustment period. The reason I got on BCP in the first place was to fix my spotting problem....and well now I have a spotting problem.
