Normally you would take 3 weeks active pills, and 1 week nonactive. To skip your period you would take active pills in place of nonactive for the 4th week. When you would normally start a new pack, right after the 4th week, is when you would start.
i take orto tri cyclen and I've skipped a day or two with the green pill but i still get my period
Yes it can cause spotting which would be classed as a mild withdrawal bleed and it also puts you at risk of pregnancy. You need to use a condom for 4 weeks
You indeed can become pregnant if you missed 3 pills and are bleeding. The reason you would be bleeding or maybe spotting is because you're not taking the pills. If you've missed 3 pills in one pack, you should throw that pack away and start a new pack and definitely use backup protection!
Since birth control has hormones in them and if you quit it can take a few months for your periods to settle down. Spotting is very common. However, it's always a good idea to see your doctor and have him/her explain everything to you.

This is break-through bleeding. It can occur for a variety of reasons. Perform a pregnancy test.
spotting occurs 6-12 days after your ovulation day
I posted the above question. I know that if I miss a couple of pills in a row, I will start spotting. So if I ditch the last few days of pills, that should do the trick (supposedly). My real question is: Would it be more "natural" for my body if I skip the 7th pill of each week? I would like to take this fast-forward route if it works :)
Pregnancy can cause this spotting or irregular periods or a UTI.
Well when my heart skipped a beat, i felt a sharp pain and it felt like i couldn't breathe hope this helped
Yes but what pills would they be taking? My neighbor cat takes pills for its fur.
