... currently on the second week of active pills of the 4th month. I take my pill everyday at 10am. this past Monday I took laxative like stomach medication and decided to not take my birth control pill that day to avoid disruptions. that same night I began to spot. I took my missed pill and the next pill the next day at its regular time. I'm still bleeding and am bleeding heavily. is that normal? should I continue taking my birth control as I usually take it?
