Patient :Hi! So I am on the birth control pill orthotricyclen lo.
Halfway through this month, I accidentally missed a pill and had breakthrough bleeding for about 4 days. I'm now on the placebo pills and I haven't gotten my period. Did the breakthrough bleeding replace my period?
I'm not sexually active. This has happened before but I usually get my period even if I have breakthrough bleeding.
