I was on Mircette birth control pills for 10 years. The last couple of months, I started having spotting. My doctor switched me to YAZ. He did an ultrasound and a sonohysterogram to rule out cancer.The results came ok. I took YAZ for 1 month with no spotting. I had my period. I am now on the second pack and I am having spotting.Dark brown the first day. Light brown the second day and no spotting the third day. 1. Could this be uterine cancer? Since the sonohysterogram did not show any suspicious areas, what are the chances of the spotting to be related to uterine cancer? 2. How accurate is the sonohysterogram in diagnosing uterine cancer? 3. If i switch to a higher dose and still have spotting, what should I do?
