Thanks for the query.

Birth control pills can cause menstrual irregularities as side effects.
Prolonged bleeding is also one of them.
So your nine days period can be because of this.
Anyhow as you missed some pills better to check for pregnancy once.
If the test comes negative and your bleeding continues, better to consult gynecologist once and take medicines to stop the bleeding.
Take care.
