- sex, period, pill
I had my period about a week or two ago - I started taking my pill again directly a week after I started my 7 day break. I took the first 3 pills in the pack, but then I missed the next 4 days of pills, then I took yesterday's pill. But this morning I found out that I'm bleeding as if I would be if I was on my period. I'm not worried about being pregnant because I haven't had unprotected sex - I'm just worried as to why I'm bleeding as I wasn't sure if it was possible to have another period so soon after the last.
Any answers that can help are welcome
You have screwed up your pills, that's why you're bleeding. Our bodies are programmed to bleed when hormones are withdrawn. You should start a whole new pack and use a condom for the next 7 days because you aren't protected after missing 4 pills.
