Birth control pill effects

Patient: I was only on the pill for 3 weeks and I stopped because the side affects were too much. The third week I started spotting and that lasted about a week. My period was due about 4 days ago and I haven’t gotten it yet. Can the pill mess up your system that much after only being on it for 3 weeks?
