User :   It was pretty light, but lasted for the whole week, and now when my period actually SHOULD be starting, it has not. In fact, it is still just "light" apparently from missing my pill (and then changing my time taking it from late at night to when I wake up). I had sex this month, but not after I didn't take the pill. Also, I coincidentally see my gyno this Tuesday- so I will ask him, if I think I need to.
Doctor :   hi
User :   I should say that 1) I suppose it's called "spotting" and 2) I assume it is because I didn't take my pill, but I am actually not positive.
