i missed 2 pills in the first week of my active pills but i took all 3 pills the next day. i had unprotected sex the night before i took the 3 pills. on the day i took all the pills i bled a little, but it was really watery blood. i stopped that night. now its time for my period on the inactive pills and its late. i bled a little on the 3rd day of my inactive pills but its stopped again now.

do you think i could be pregnant or is it just side effects from taking 3 pills at once?
please help!

You can't make up for missed pills by doubling or tripling up on a day. That's not how they're meant to work.

First, I think you should make an appointment to see your OB/GYN and make sure you haven't done more harm than good.

Secondly, learn to take your BC pills on schedule.

Hope all is well.
