I've been on continuous birth control pills for almost two years. To 'treat' endometriosis. Is it normal to randomly spot/ have breakthrough bleeding?

In brief: Ans

Yes it is.
The birth control alters the hormones. The uterine wall still needs to thin. But no ovulation. So you can get a full period or spotty blessing on and off
