This is my first time taking birth control. I'm only taking it to skip my period in two cycles for a trip. I've been spotting for three days. It's light enough to just use a panty liner. My actual period shouldn't start for another 12 days so it's completely between periods. Does anyone have an idea on how long this lasts? I just want to make sure that me skipping my period in two cycles (hopefully it works) isn't going to cost me a month or two of spotting. Also, I have been taking a multivitamin every day, which I will now stop because I read may increase the effects, so I will stop taking those just in case. Any thoughts on this? Other than the spotting, I have only noticed a little bit of nausea almost every day (but that's okay because I've been eating less). Thank you for any thoughts and ideas about this!
