Bleeding while skipping inactive birth control pills (skipping period)

Patient: Is it normal to bleed (exactly like having a period) a week after skipping inactive birth control pills? I tried skipping my period for the first time by skipping the inactive pills and starting the active ones again straight away but I started bleeding a week after I was supposed to bleed and it has lasted 5 days now.

Symptoms: bleeding- the same as I would bleed while getting my period.
