I started a new pack of birth control and was doing just fine with no spotting and then a week later, I started spotting. Given the amount of questions about spotting, I read through and know spotting is normal. My question is, I am on a low dose birth control and am wondering if is okay to have intercourse while spotting? I have been on it for about 2 weeks and we have avoided intercourse to maki sure we were safe from pregnancy. But now I am spotting. . . are we okay? Or should we wait a little longer until it stops. . . hopefully not 3 months out, because as I've read I could be spotting for that long.
GREAT QUESTION! And you will find many different answers to this question of oral contraceptive efficacy with spotting.
