Need preg test: Though late, you seemed to get a period every month after you stopped the pill until October .. then just spotting. You need to do a home pregnancy test. It is not uncommon for women to spot during early pregnancy. Do a couple. Either way, positive or negative, call/see your doctor. Either for evaluation of spotting/missed period or prenatal care. Take a prenatal vitamin! Good luck!
