Can missing one birth control pill cause vaginal bleeding?
Hi, You shouldn't be bleeding for weeks after this incident. See your doctor and change birth control pill. It most likely isn't the correct pill for you.
When you're taking the birth control pill, you don't have a menstrual period. Instead, you have withdrawal bleeding. Menstrual periods are vaginal bleeding the follows ovulation by 14 days. Withdrawal bleeding is vaginal bleeding brought on by sudden cessation of hormone ingestion. Whether you have unscheduled bleeding from missing a pill or scheduled bleeding during your placebo week, neither is called a menstrual period.
Brown vaginal discharge is "old blood." It's caused by several things which are as follows: * Just finished your period & this is left over blood. * Missing of birth control pill. * Break through bleeding while on birth control. * UTI (Urinary tract infection). * Yeast infection which has caused slight bleeding due to scratching.
The bleeding is caused by missing the birth control pills and is known as break through bleeding. If you are sexually active you will need to take the morning after pill to prevent pregnancy from occurring. Meanwhile, use a back up method of protection for 14 days to prevent pregnancy from occurring and continue taking birth control daily as normal.
Irregular spotting or unscheduled bleeding are common side effects in the first three months of the birth control pill. This bleeding or spotting couldgo on for days or weeks, but not every woman will have this side effect. If episodes of breakthrough bleeding continue into the fourth cycle of pills, or if they are troublesome, contact your health care provider to discuss a possible change in pill.
It's possible to have unscheduled bleeding in the first three months of birth control use. After that, you should settle into a more regular pattern. There is no medical phenomenon thought of as "your body acting up on birth control." If you are bleeding heavily, have been bleeding for a prolonged period, or have additional symptoms like pain or unusual vaginal discharge, you should contact your health care provider.
It's convenient to start the birth control pill, patch, ring, injection, IUD, or implant on the day your period starts, as you then have immediate protection; however, it's not strictly necessary. If you're talking about taking birth control after you've been on it a while, you should take your birth control as scheduled regardless of vaginal bleeding.
I'm not sure what the difference is between bleeding during your period and bleeding "after your period" in the first three months of birth control pill use, you may have unscheduled bleeding. This side effect usually goes away after three months. If you're having bleeding that's troublesome, or that's associated with pain or unusual vaginal discharge, talk to your health care provider.

If a woman has a period, it is unlikely that she is pregnant; however, birth control is not 100% effective. The bleeding you have while on birth control is not actually a period; it is withdrawal bleeding, a reaction to lower hormones in the days you use a placebo pill. If you're having a typical withdrawal bleed, chances are low that you are pregnant. If you're pregnant, you will not have a normal withdrawal bleed…
Should you continue to take birth control pills even if you start bleeding during your active pills?
You should continue to take the birth control pill even if you experience breakthrough bleeding.

Unscheduled bleeding on the birth control pill is more likely if you missed pills, if you're in your first three months of pills, or if you're taking medications or herbs that interfere with the pill (e.g. St. John's Wort). If the bleeding happens again, is troublesome to you, or is accompanied by pain, painful urination, or unusual vaginal discharge, contact your health care provider.
