I started bleeding on Sept 18th 2014 while on my active pills, but the week before I forgot to take one of the pills so the next day I took two, but then my bleeding started as I said on Sept 18th. So I continued taking the pink active pills and today is my last pink one and I'm still not done with the bleeding. Do I continue onto my new pack of birth control or wait till I'm done my period ???
Have my period While Still on The Active Birth Control Pills?

Yes, you take the seven white pills too, no matter where during the month that you bleed. Just stick to your schedule, hon! The ONLY time you worry about when your period comes is in starting the first pack, after that, just take them in order. Irregular periods are common, especially early on or if you miss pills, you can have breakthrough bleeding but you still take the whole pack.
NO, do not wait for your period to end. You always stick to the pill schedule, no matter what your body is doing. Otherwise it will hinder your protection. Don't you have 7 inactive pills? What pill are you on, its easier to answer If I know that.
probably what happened because you missed that pill it triggered your body to bleed. That's how our body works, when the hormone levels drop we bleed, so that's what yours did. If you stick to the schedule it will end.
