Hi Kimberleywright ,

Thanks for the query

First of all, if you are doubtful of missing pill, you should rule out pregnancy with the help of a pregnancy test kit.

Irregular and increased blood flow is one of the side effects of oral contraceptive pills.This is due to low estrogen or low progesterone. Continued use of pills can control the bleeding.

At this stage, you can try some haemostatics like tranexemic acid tablets and analgesics like mefenemic acid tablets.

If this episode is not controlled with this or recurs,then you have to get a few investigations done like complete blood profile, blood glucose, thyroid profile,coagulation profile and ultrasonography of uterus and adnexa to rule out any other pathology.

Good luck.

Hope this information is helpful and informative to you. If you have any further query you can directly reach out to me on the following URL:
