I've been on the pill for almost a year. I'm taking it every night. I'm on the second week of the pack, so the white pills. I missed one night and took it in the morning when I realized. Then took another one at night after approx 12 hours. Next day, I had light pinkish blood stains on my underwear. What does that mean?
You took two doses late and your body sensed the drop in hormones which triggered withdrawal bleeding. You need to be sure to use condoms for seven days after a miss or a pill more than a few hours late. Your period is actually a withdrawal bleed. The 4th week pills are inert-there is no medicine or hormones in them-this drop in hormone is what triggers the withdrawal bleed.
