Birth Control Mistake


Q: So I'm a bit worried and confused on what is happening in my system at the moment. I made a mistake of taking 3 birth control pills at once, because I wanted to get back on track. Assuming it didn't really help because now I'm bleeding abnormally, some light, very few heavy, and it's a bit soon for my period. I thought it was normal for a few days, so I've been sexually active throughout, but with protection. Can you help me figure what is happening and will I be okay? How do I fix this and get my normal bleeding on track.

Symptoms:  Bleeding abnormally, moody
