In one of those situations that I cannot explain, we ask women to adjust to their birth control pills rather than the other way around.  That means that we accept (or rather ask you to accept) spotting for the first several months as your hormones get adjusted to the pills.  However, if the spotting continues, it very well could be due to an imbalance of the estrogen & progesterone components of your birth control pill.  Depending upon your age and when you started the birth control pill, we might even worry about uterine cancer.  Best to chat with the physician who prescribed you your birth control pills.  Good luck.
