I've been on the birth control pill Ocella since December of 2013. I take it farily consistently at 3:30pm every afternoon. Since last Wednesday (5/13) I have been spotting, light brown discharge but also some heavier red occasionally-- i think because I had taken my pill a few hours late some days (around 5 or 6) since this has happened before. That was still while I was on my 3rd week of active pills. Then on Monday (5/18), which was supposed to be the start of my placebo pills, I had skipped these inactive pills and started a new pack of active pills, at 11am instead, because I wanted to stop bleeding and not have my period this week, which is supposed to happen this Friday (5/22). But I haven't stopped spotting at all since last week. Now I'm worried because I skipped my placebo week and went straight to a new pack of active pills, I won't stop spotting. I'm on the third day of active pills for the 1st week of this pack and have been taking to consistently at 11am. Can someone explain to me what's going on and why I won't stop spotting? Is there a chance I will have my period Friday or just continue to spotting until my next month's period?
