Took pills. Had spotting. Prescribed Duphaston to get periods. Have not got periods. Just spotting. Effect of pills?

Hi Doc, I m Diane..i had my problem it bothers me a lot since last year after taking a pills (depo) i started taking this pills by November 2012 then i had my spotting december 2012 which i dont expect to have because i know i take pills,it last for more than 1 week until it stop, then by January 2013 i had spotting again, so i visited my OB My OB responded that its the common effect of the pills so she said that my menstruation should be in regular/normal she advised me to take duphaston (i take it for 5 days, twice a day) and to have my Ultrasound (transV) the result is ok they found no problem but it was noted that there was a endocervical content consider mucous plug versus blood clot. After taking the same meds i expected to have my menstruation on that month but then i still dont have my period and i take again same medicine as per advised of my OB..until i have my spotting for almost 7 days from now so what will i do Doc? is it really the side effects of the pills? please hel

Hello Diane.
It is common to have erratic bleeding or spotting while on birth control.
Duphaston is generally given to regulate cycles.
However, the issue should have resolved by now.
The ultrasounds can is absolutely normal, so do not worry.
Also, consult a gynecologist again as even after 6 months, the problem is persisting.
You could switchover to another preparation.
take care.
