Couldn't find what you looking for?


I have started spotting today and I have been on birth control for four years now. Now there has been a lot of drama recently and I am trying to look for work and I am stressed out and read this might cause that and this has happened before about 3 years ago during some stressful times as well. Anyone know reasons this would be happening. My period is practically like clockwork on BC and only slight cramps as to massive ones and heavy bleeding I had before I got on birth control


Hi there

Yes, extreme stress is one of the cause. If, however you have been sexually active with unprotected sex - it is likely that you are pregnant [spotting before due periods is a sign of implantation bleeding]. If pregnancy symptoms continue, you might want to visit a doctor who can conduct a clinical pregnancy test.

Destress yourself, eat well, sleep well. Good luck
