ongoing period
Hi doc
I am a sexually active 23 year old and I am currently taking triphasil, which i have been for about 3 years now.

About 2 weeks ago I accidentally skipped a day of my pill and hence started my period, i continued taking my pill, thinking my period would finish but it hasnt finished. It hasnt been heavy bleeding, more like very bloody discharge which hasnt stopped since i skipped my pill 2 weeks ago.

Please let me know what you think the problem is....

The missed pill has most likely upset your hormones. Carry on taking the Pill as normal. It should resolve.

Hazie, please post your question seperately.
