Hi christine,
Skipping a OCP in middle of cycle may increase risk of unwanted pregnancy, if you have missed period and now you are bleeding for 12 days may be incomplete abortion with infection which needs to be evacuted immedietely, consult ER soon as you may develop severe anaemia and sepsis.
Take care
