Detailed Answer:

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments.

1) Hormonal imbalance (due to effect of the tablet) and pelvic infection may cause this type of inter-menstrual spotting. However, it is very mild (according to given information) and you don't need to worry much. Just maintain genital hygiene properly.

2) Another thing, it may be a sign of ovulation if it occurs in the middle of the cycle. It is quite NORMAL. It occurs due to sudden drop in estrogen that occurs just before ovulation and leads to withdrawal bleeding (mild).

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.
