Hi Lama, I see that you wrote your question to Julia but somehow your question was in the question pool at
So I am answering. Yes, I would say that spotting and break through bleeding could be a problem for you. You should really talk to your doctor about this. I think you could possibly get pregnant. Please email me at so we can talk more.
