Hi all. I'm on Zovia. This month, I decided to skip my period week and go straight to the hormone pills. Fyi, all the pills have the same amount of hormones. Anyway, I started spotting after which I understood would be a side effect, however, a few days after, I started having my period. I usually have heavy periods; this one was heavy but not as heavy as my actual periods. Are my pills still effective? Why did I get heavy period like bleeding? I always through break through bleeding was just spotting, but not a full blown period. Am I still protected against pregnancy?
