Does missing a birth control pill cause bleeding.

In the past week or so I have taken a few pills late. Does anyone know of this can cause bleeding. I have some bleeding and/or discharge that is reddish and did not start until I took some pills late.

  • Yes, I've had it happen before. And if you miss too many don't try to make them all up! It will make you sick ( learned this the hard way! :D)
