Brief Answer:
it can happen

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for the question.
When periods are manipulated with hormones like northisterone, it can take several months for the normal menstrual cycles to resume. If they do not return to normal within the next few months, then you may need to be placed on birth control pills for a few months to get them regulated.
The spotting is normal after a hormonal manipulation like that. If it becomes heavy bleeding then see your doctor to make sure you are not becoming anemic.
I wish you the best,
Dr. Robinson
