As the title says. I have just come to the end of my second set of pills - I occasionally put two packs together - however I missed a pill number 25 of 28 and have had breakthrough bleeding. Before the bleeding started I continued taking the remaining three pills of the pack, which I've now finished.

I'm still having breakthrough bleeding and I'm now due to stop the pack for my seven day break. If I do take the break, will my usual period be shorter than normal? Or if I continue taking the pills for the next set, will the bleeding continue?

My partner is in the army and back for one weekend's leave before he goes away for eight weeks - hence concern!
