What causes pink vaginal discharge?

Just changed contraceptive pills about two weeks ago just after my period. The past two days I have had lvery light pink blood when I wipe. I have been having unprotected sex but have taken my pill every day, on time. Any ideas? I should mention, I ve just had a recent Pap smear - sin 3 two years ago. Thank you

Dear member,
Thanks for writing to healthcare magic.
The spotting you mentioned occurs if you have shifted from a highwe estrogen dowe pill to one with lower estrogen.
If you have taken the pill regularly then chance of pregnancy is low.
The spotting should settle in few days.
Please do a pap smear if it was done more than a year ago.
Thanks
Dr Bhagyashree.
