Today I start the 3rd week of the pills yesterday was my last pill of the second pack. I went to the bathroom and when I wiped my self I noticed light bleeding on the paper I haven't missed a pill or took it late. I also want to mention that last month I took an emergency pill. I just want to know why did I bleed yesterday my period isn't supposed to come yet.

Hello and thank you for choosing EmpowHer,
First of all, you should be aware that monthly birth control pills are enough to prevent pregnancy. Never take emergency contraception at the same time. Both contain hormones and you will experience negative side effects such as spotting, irregular periods, nausea, cramps, fatigue etc.
The bleeding is most likely from taking both at the same time. At this point, all you need to do is wait it out. Your hormones will balance over time as long as you do not take emergency contraception.
