I have had irregular periods since I was 16 ( I am now 24). I have been on and off birth control for the last 5 years. I am currently on the pill now. The last pack I was not taking them consistently but I was taking them everyday. I decided to skip the inactive pills and started a fresh pack. Since then, I have been having some light bleeding. This has been going on for a few days now. What should I do?
Just keep taking your pills. Sometimes it doesn't work to totally skip your period doing that. Part of that is you weren't consistent last month. For full protection and to avoid bleeding like you're having, you have to take your pills at the same time every day. Pick a time that you can always take your pill, not bedtime, because that isn't the same, not when you get up because that isn't the same either. You have to make at a specific time. Like 8pm.
