Q: Why am i getting spotting and cramps 2 weeks before my period?

I'm not supposed to get my period for another 2 weeks but yesterday I had light colored blood only when i wiped and today i have what feels like period cramps. What could this be? I am on the pill and I haven't missed any, the last time we had sex was 2 days before the blood happened.

I did find out what was happening.... it turns out that the pill I was on wasn't strong enough.  I was taking a pill that was gradually increasing the hormones per week.  Now I am on a pill that has the same strength of pill each week and I haven't had the problem since!

Oh i see. I think i read about that online. I'm on my third pill pack though maybe I'm just getting used to it still? I know the kind is low dosage combination or something. I wish this stuff wasn't so complicated. Thanks
