Im on my first week of my new pack of pills. Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th I missed pills (2 in a row). Monday I took 2 when I remembered to make up for the missed ones and about 20 mins after I took them I had unprotected sex amd he finished inside. Tuesday (yesterday) I woke up bleeding and its kind of heavy and this same night (Tuesday night) I missed my pill again. What should I do? WHY AM I BLEEDING?! PLEASE HELP!

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  There is a highly increased chance of pregnancy when you go several days without taking your pills. The bleeding can be due to your period or any hormonal changes due to the pill.  You should talk to your doctor about another form of birth control.  If you are still concerned of pregnancy you should take a home pregnancy test.

Here is a link that might be helpful
