Spotting while on the pill
I gave birth to a baby 7 months ago. My cycles went back to normal immediately and when baby was 3 months I went back on the pill and again no problems.

No suddenly this month I'm having alot of spotting for more than a week now and I'm only in the middle om my packet and not even close to my period.

I took a HPT as I though I maybe fell preggies on the pill and having a mc as I did have mc's before.

Is this something to be concerned about or can it be that my hormones are just messing around after the pregnancy?

It is most likely hormonal. I would suggest that you wait and see what happens next month.
