breakthrough bleeding
im on diane 35. i was late in taking my pill about a week or two ago. i took it the next day-after the 12 hours had lapsed. i did not have intercourse after that. i have started bleeding-a proper period with the breast tenderness and everything. is this due to the delay in taking the pill?

Hallo Zara
It could be that the level of the progesterone dropped causing menstruation - just continue with the pills as usual - it is not harmful
