    Hello , 

    As you have already taken 3 doses of ECP, there is hormonal imbalance because of which you are getting spotting and scanty bleeding. Be patient and wait for your period. Actually the scanty bleeding can also be the withdrawal bleeding. When was your previous mentrual cycle. If it was on July 13 , you have had intercourse in your safe period so there is nothing to worry. Chances of pregnancy are low. Wait for another week and if still you donot bleed take a course of Primolut N twice daily for 5 days and yu will get your withdrawal bleeding on 5thday after stopping the medicine. Consult a gynecologist for further advice.
