Hi there,

I have been on the contraceptive pill since Late January early February. i have been lightly bleeding since the 16th of April. On the 6th and 15th I have forgotten to take the pill all together. On both of those days I had intercourse. I skipped my last menstual cycle. Which had I not have skipped would have occurred on the 1st if April. There were also 2 days in my last month of the pill where I accidentally took the placebo pills instead of the active pills. What do you think the cause of the light bleeding is

The cause of the bleeding is the breakthrough bleeding due to missing the pills from your last pack.Start a new pack after your next period. You should take a pregnancy test if you missed a period,because you are not protected from pregnancy due to missing the period.
