Spotting Before Period
An_252414 posted:

I started "spotting" yesterday which is a week before I should have started my period. It was a very, very light-brown color and it wasn't a lot, but I still used a panty liner. I've had the same today but at times, it's been a little more pink colored than yesterday. In addition, I saw a few "chunks" when whipping, almost like during a period. I am currently on the birth control pill. I was on it a for a few years, stopped, and then started using it again last April, so well over a year now. What could be the cause? Could it be implantation bleeding?
