Irregular Bleeding following Pill

I have been debating off and on the idea of starting the pill. I've had the perscription for a month and this past Thursday I decided to start my 28 combo pack and took 1 pill. I immediately regretted it, for no other reason besides just how I feel about it. Anyways.. I decided to not take any more pills from the pack. Saturday night I began very light bleeding and now have cramping & a very light period...the alarming part is I just had my period 7 days ago. Could taking 1 pill throw my hormones off enough to cause spotting or is this something totally unrelated? I'm 31 with 2 small children 1yr & 3yrs if that changes anything. Thank you for your help!!

Hello Jaypiddy

Thank you for writing.

Some women are very sensitive to the Pill so taking only one and then spotting after can be considered normal. See what the next month brings - it's likely you will go back to being regular quickly.
