I was finishing week 2 of my birth control pills, Ortho Cyclen, which I have been taking for almost 2 years. I skipped two pills and started a period. I took those two pills along with the pill I was supposed to take on that 3rd day but I still started a random period.
-Side note: About 6-8 months ago I accidentally skipped about 7 pills when I went on vacation and just doubled up each day to catch up and never even started a period then!!
I talked to a pharmacist, and then continued to take the rest of the pills. At the end of the 3rd week, instead of starting the placebo pills, I started a new pack, in hopes to end my period. I am now going on my 13th day of this period, with no hopes to ever stop bleeding! The period is very light now but still continues. Before all this happened I was completely regular, to a tee.
