    Default Bleeding while taking the pill?

    I am so confused with what to do at the moment.
    We went away for 2 nights (got home yesterday) I forgot to pack my pill while I was away so missed 2 active pills in a row (but took an active pill last night when getting home I usually take my pill of a night anyway)
    This afternoon I started bleeding not just spotting but full period bleed. I know this is probably cause I missed 2 active pills but I am sure what to do next.
    Do I keep taking the active pills as usual even though I am bleeding ( I am only at the start if my month) or should I skip right to the end red section and starting taking the sugar pills?
    There has to be someone out there this has happened too? I just don't want any "accidents"

    This has happened to me. I would just keep taking the active pills. It will sort itself out eventually. I kept taking the active pills and it all sorted itself out eventually

    Hmmmm well I did tell my GP about it and he said to just keep taking the active ones and take the pill as normal until it sorts itself out. Hope that helps!

    I don't know for sure.. But for me personally I would A, be using other forms of contraception in the meantime for at least a couple of weeks and B, keep taking the pills from where you are because I think it's counted as a breakthrough bleed rather than your actual period?
