Post spotting turned period-like

Okay I began taking Mircette (BCP) late June. I understand it is normal to experience spotting intermittently for the first 2-3 months as your body adjusts. Well I began spotting Monday and it has been getting worse - now it is pretty much a regular period (not expecting mine for another week at least). Is it common for spotting to become more like a period? I was under the impression spotting was a little blood and not much pain. Apparently I was wrong because I am having regular menstral pain and the blood just keeps coming.

Is spotting that similar to a period or is something wrong with me?

Thank you!

Perhaps your system hasn't adjusted yet to the BC, you may be having your regular period a little early, give it some time and see if it last the usual time and then stops, if not call your doc, but my guess is your still adjusting.

Hey that just happened to me! I have 2 days until placebo but I began spotting this week and yesterday I pretty much had my period. I wonder if it will come again when I take the placebos...
