I am on my 3rd pack of Aviane and 1st 2 months where fine aside from extreme cramps the 1st 2 days of 1st period (which I don't usually get) but after that nothing. Hasn't shortened or lightened my periods yet though. It does keep it where I get it on a Monday and down by Friday. Last month I did forget one of the reminder pills but not sure if that would cause spotting this month. I've had spotting all week (July 31st- August 6). It's on/off and mostly on toilet paper. My period isn't due to August 8th. Any help would be great. I am 34 and this is my first prescription birth control (used to use over the counter stuff)
Yes, spotting is a normal side effect of all birth control pills. You will still have full contraceptive cover. The spotting should settle in a cycle or two. If it does not settle then see your doctor, Aviane may not be right for you.
As a side point it does not matter if you forget to take your reminder pills. They are only sugar tablets and will not cause spotting.
