I am very worried. I'm on the contraceptive Melodene, and I only skipped one active pill and now I've started spotting.

Dear LP
You don't have to be worried - it is common to get spotting if you upset the hormonal levels a bit, especially if you are taking low dose contraceptives. However you need to take extra precautions like using a condom as your pill may not work 100% for this month.
