I just started birth control for the first time on October 29th (exactly two weeks ago) and I started it mid cycle because I wasn't sure when my next period would come because it's irregular. But, I'm only starting my 3rd week of pills today, and I got my period last Friday (in the middle of the second week). Usually, my period is about 3-4 days long but Im still spotting and kinda bleeding today (day 6). Is this normal? Should I be concerned? Also, I haven't skipped a pill, and ive taken them, everyday at about the same time (11-12 ish)
Its normal, and its not your period, its breakthrough bleeding from the pills. This is normal in the first 6 months until you get used to it.
