Am I bleeding because I missed 2 pills?

I’m on birth control (pills). I had my period from September 19-24th. I actually missed 2 of my pills last week, and I started bleeding on October 1st, and I’m still bleeding 4th. Why am I bleeding? Is it bc I missed two pills?

Its normal. Remember that the pill helps keep your hormones on a certain level. When you stop/miss a few days, it causes your hormone levels to decrease (which is what happens when we get our periods) so it can cause you to get an early/unscheduled period. Talk to your doctor to make sure that you take the right precautions in order to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. I would also suggest getting another non-daily method like the patch or the injection that you won’t forget.

Yes and make sure you use a backup birth control

Ya. That can happen just taking them regularly.
I’ve been on oral BC about six years now.

Probably. Best to take at same time everyday.

I hate birth control pills, everytime i missed a dose i’d start bleeding, my reason was because i missed a dose. Just wait until you want to get off the pill. Thats hell

Probably, Same thing happened to me when I took birth control. After missing two pills I wouldn’t stop bleeding until the one week I was not supposed to bleed. BTW it only works if you take it EVERY day at the same time. Be careful, if you’re active and not trying to get pregnant.

Sure can.
DON’T have sex

It could b because u missed 2 pills but call ur dr for guidance.

I don’t think there are any doctors on here so you asking the wrong folks. Go to the expert…A Doctor…SMH

Wow Talk about putting it out there .despite for answers lol

Most likely. Depending on which pill you’re taking. Most of them, if more than one pill is missed it messes with your hormones and triggers your period as if it were an odd week— regardless of whether you’ve already had your cycle already

Whenever I miss a pill a always get my period again

Could be stress ect.

Probably. If I missed even 1 day I’d start my period

I had breakthrough bleeding if I missed pills at all during the month. I still got actual periods too

Even missing 1 pill would cause me to have a period.

Well I missed two and got preg
