Girlfriend on Sprintec-28 for 4 years. She stopped taking for 6 months; now taking again and on her 2nd package. Started taking active pills on Friday July 4th; intercourse on Tuesday July 8th ; then she forgot to take Tuesday July 8th and Wednesday July 9th; did not double up, just skipped tues/wed pills and has been taking since. About 4 days later (Sat July 12th) started spotting and thinks she had another period. Not sure if might be pregnant or if she should continue taking current pack of pills? Start a whole new pack? what about the 2 extra (not taken pills)?
She should keep taking it, and doing it correctly. She had bleeding because she missed 2 pills. She should start a whole new pack and keep on it, not stop for a period along the way. She may skip the next period but she'll have one when she hits the inactive pills.
BLEEDING IS NOT A SIGN OF PREGNANCY
