    Spotting on first month of ortho tricyclen lo?

    I recently switched from Loestrin24 fo Orthotricyclen lo (monophasic to triphasic pill). It has been my first month of the orthotricylcen lo and I realize that when switching pills like that, it is normal to have spotting between periods for the first few months. However, my spotting lasted 5 days and occurred right around the middle of my cycle and I now have my period when I'm supposed to (during the sugar pills). I've heard that spotting is supposed to last from only 1-3 days. Is spotting for 5 days normal or should I be worried about something else?
