Skipping of Loestrin24FE

I'm on Loestrin24FE and I've been on it for about 3 months. I have had some problems with breakthrough bleeding in the past. A couple of weeks ago, I accidentally skipped a pill and took 2 the next day. The next morning, I woke up bleeding as if I were on my period. The bleeding continued and slowly began slowing down. Now, I'm on my week of inactive pills, and I'm still bleeding but only a very little bit. Is there any possibility of pregnancy?

With bleeding there is no chance of pregnancy. So you should not worry about it.
