Not worrisome: Up to 50 % of women taking mini pill see some form of menstrual problem ranging from spotting to no menses for months. Make sure you are not pregnant by repeated testing. Pill failure can happen. Next thing you can do is take a break from mini pill untill next period happens then can resume again. if period doesnt come in couple of months even after stopping; get yourself checked out.
