The switch in pills may have caused the issues too. I had a similar issue when I switched from YAZ to Microgestin. I actually spotted for a little less than a month, with intermittent clots- it was not fun.

Thank you so much! I just had an ultra-sound a few months ago and everything was fine, however I have switched pills since then! Thanks for the info, I'll be talking it over with my doctor! :D

when I started having that kind of spotting or period, the doctor told me it was caused by benign tumors in the muscle wall. I used many methods to control that til 20 years later I got cancer and had the whole thing removed. at the time of the cancer diagnosis the doctor gave me progesterone to balance all the extra estrogen we have as PCOS victims and that stopped the cancer bleeding.

because we have so much estrogen in the body, and not enough progesterone to cause a proper period, the menstrual tissue builds up to such an abnormal thickness that the body can't support the weight of it and it tears and falls out. this is what the "clots" are.

Just as a layman's guess, you're pills may not be balanced properly for the extra estrogen you have in your body. I would call the doctor, have the nurse write down the symptoms and ask her to ask the doctor if the pills might need tweeking in estrogen/progesterone balance.

Doctors don't like to give you to much progesterone because it also has bad side effects, but they can find something that works for you if you give them enough feedback so they know they need to keep trying.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Yeah it can take up to 2 months to get in to see my doctor so I was hoping that maybe somebody had a similar experience. That way I can put my mind at ease until I can get in.

I would check with your doctor. Spotting for more than a week, if you're back on BC, seems a little off. It'll help put your mind at ease, too.

I'm not sure whats 'normal' for you. If you are concerned, make an appt with your Dr. or at the very least call and explain what is happening. They will either want to see your or they will tell you what to do.

So I had my period like normal a few weeks ago, and went back on my birth control. I accidently missed two pills in a row and started them back up, but when I missed those two days I started spotting.. but it's been weird. Dark brown blood and mostly tiny stringy clots. Today I had a larger clot that was part white/clear. It's been over a week since I've started spotting. Is this abnormal, or fairly normal? (I'm only asking because this is the first full year I've had my period every month, and haven't ever received my period before that, so I'm still learning how to deal with a period).
