I am on mononessa, I missed two of my birth control pills in a row and started my period right after, I stopped taking the pack because I was not sure what pills I should take or if I should even be taking them I then did not get my period when I usually get my period, I started my new pack when it was time for me to start even though I did not have my period. is getting my period early then missing my period on time normal?
Yes, your out of sync bleeding is normal. Missing pills upsets hormone levels and breakthrough bleeding results. It also reduces the effectiveness of the pill. It doesn't really matter when you start taking your pills again but you will need to make sure you have taken 7 tablets on consecutive days to be protected from pregnancy. Use a back up method of contraception such as condoms in the mean time.

Never ever alter your pill schedule no matter what., you need to use a condom for the first 7 days now. That was not your period, it was breakthru bleeding. The appropriate thing to do when you have that is to just keep taking your pills. When you first start on pills you body has to get used to the hormones. There is probably nothing left to bleed. It does not matter if you skip a period. You don't need to have one every month when you are on the the pill. When you missed the 2 pills in a row what you should do is take 2 pills 2 days and use a condom for seven days.
