1. Take a pregnancy test just to be sure - irregular spotting is common early in pregnancy, and no birth control method is 100%. 2. High levels of stress can affect your menstrual cycle, as can certain medications (ibuprofen, naproxen other NSAIDs can block prostaglandins and cause menses to be irregular) 3. Check with your doctor, infections like bacterial vaginitis (and STI's) can affect menses
