Back pain, cramps, breakthrough bleeding, missed BCP. Normal?

I have taken birth control religiously for the past 4-5 months. My last period started on the 7th of this month. I missed two birth control pills last week, Monday and Tuesday to be exact in my second week. I doubled up the next two days and have taken it everyday since. I haven t had any intercourse either. I experienced breakthrough bleeding until I got caught up. I am now experiencing back pain and cramps and I was just wondering if this is normal and what else can I expect before my cycle gets back in order?

The missed pills are the cause for the breakthrough bleeding. You may be getting some symptoms like PMS that you may usually get with cramps, nausea, bloating etc. Nothing majorly to worry about.But have protected sex this month.You cycle will regularise eventually. Just keep taking the pills as usual.
