I missed 3 days of birth control and got my “period” which now understand is withdraw bleeding..? That lasted for about 2 days and I thought it went away but then it just turned a brown color. And AGAIN I thought it went away, but this morning I woke up with bright red blood. All together, this bleeding has lasted a total of about a week. Is any of this related to possible pregnancy? I’m not supposed to start my period for another 6 days. Thanks!

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.
If you haven't been having sex then there won't be an issue. If you have, then a test can be done about a week from now. In the meantime, keep taking your pills.
