Missed my first pill.

So, here's the story. I've been on birth control for over 2 years or so. I've never missed a pill until Sunday night (the 25th). I have my alarm on my phone set for 11pm every night. But on Sunday night I was on the phone when my alarm went off, so in my head I told myself I'd take my pill once I got off the phone. But sadly, I forgot. Then I woke up the next morning around 9 and remembered that I never took it, so I took it then. Around 6 or so hours later I started getting cramps and then noticed I had some old blood/slightly fresh blood on my underwear. So I put in a pantie liner. The weird thing is, is that even when I finish a birth control pack it usually takes me two fulls days to actually start my period. So, why did it my period/spotting come so early this time? I'm confused and I'm still having spotting/bleeding today. I had to wear a regular tampon on two different days. Is this normal? It's kind of freaking me out.

Re: Missed my first pill.

Your body is really in tune with your pill taking! Just missing the pill this once made your body go into "period" mode. Just keep taking your pills on time as usual. You should have a period when you're on your placebos but don't be alarmed if it's a strange period. You sound like a really good pill taker--good for you!
