Bleeding between periods while taking birth control pills.

It is important to not completely stop taking your contraceptive pill as it may lead to a loss of effectiveness. Brown spotting can be a side effect of oral contraceptives, especially in the first 3 months. It is important to rule out other causes of vaginal bleeding, such as STIs or pregnancy. If you have had unprotected sex recently, it is recommended to get tested for STIs. Taking a pregnancy test is also advisable if you suspect you might be pregnant. It is unlikely that stopping for less than 7 days is the cause of the issue mentioned. You can wait to see if the spotting resolves on its own in the next pack, as it could be due to temporary hormonal imbalance or an unnoticed missed pill. Taking a break from continuous use every 3 months is not mandatory, and it may actually worsen spotting for some individuals. If the spotting persists, consulting with a doctor to explore other causes and potentially try a different contraceptive pill may be necessary.
