Skipped inactive pills, bleeding
I decided to skip the white pills in my Yasmin pack so as not to have a period while on holiday. I experienced some light bleeding, but nothing serious. However it has become worse to the point where it now looks almost like normal period bleeding. I'm on the 6th week of yellow pills, due to have period next week. What should I do? If I just have the period as normal, will the bleeding stop afterwards?

This sometimes happens when you skip the placebos. It should settle after the next period.
