Taking Microgynon. Spotting between periods. Cause of breakthrough bleeding?

I m on the combined pill microgynon and today six days into my new pack after the pill free week and a normal period which normally lasts around 3 days into my new pack I forgot to take my pill this morning. When I went to the toilet I wiped away some red blood . Just a small amount and nothing else since. What could be causing this breakthrough bleeding? Could it be because I forgot to take my pill that morning?

Thanks for the query.
Yes, the spotting you noticed could be break through bleeding due to missing the pill
Anyhow as 24 hours not yet over, you take the pill now.
And continue remaining pills as usual.
Possibly your spotting will subside soon.
If the spotting continues, consult gynecologist once and take tablets to control it.
For more details you can ask me directly through the premium forum.
Take care.
