Extended period

I'm just wondering if any of you have noticed that the length of your period (including spotting) has extended since you started using a cup?

My period used to be: spotting for 2 days, bleed for 3 days, spot for like 4 or 5 days. Yea, pretty dang sucky.

But now? My last period pretty much ended over a week ago. And yet, my body is still doing the brown spotting thing. It's driving me crazy. For the past two or three months, I only have one week(ish) a month when I don't have red/brown discharge. Not a lot at this point, but enough to make me uncomfortable to go without protection because of a little drip of brown here or there.

I'm just frustrated because it is making me self conscious about being intimate with my boyfriend. Afterall, there are some things you don't want your boyfriend to do to you when you are still spotting, if you get my drift.

I thought my body was just adjusting to the cup use, but man, it's been like this since I made the switch. This isn't enough of an inconvenience to make me give up on the wonder of cups, but it sure is annoying.
