On Wednesday I went on a camping trip and forgot to pack my BCPs with me, causing me to miss two days of my pills. As soon as I got back on Friday I took two pills, and then two the next day. Throughout this time, I've been having breakthrough bleeding, which started on Friday. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on Saturday because I thought I stopped bleeding, and no blood was present. Afterwards, I noticed that I was bleeding again, but this time the blood was more red than it was. What does this mean?
It means you forgot to take your pills. Our bodies react by bleeding when hormones are decreased.
