I've stop using the pill Femodene in January 2012, then started using it again in mid March. In mid April 2012 I stop again. Have some spotting now. Would like to know if I could be pregnant?

Thanks for posting your query.
Oral pills like Femodene taken intermittently only for a month gives only upto 80% protection against pregnancy. If your periods are overdue and you are having intermittent mild spotting then pregnancy needs to be ruled out using a kit easily available at all the pharmacies.
In case the pregnancy test is negative then you need to rule out vaginal infections by a vaginal swab culture as a cause of the spotting you are having.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
