I am on the contraceptive pill but am not taking the sugar pill while bleeding i am on the other one.
Symptoms: Severe Pain in lower stomach region

Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
While taking contraceptive pills, some amount of menstrual irregularities are common.
But having excessive bleeding while using a contraceptive pill is somewhat uncommon.
Avoiding the non-hormonal pill or sugar pill may not affect the contraception.
But if you missed any of the active or hormonal pills, there is a possibility of pregnancy and miscarriage.
In that case please go for an ultrasound once to rule out this possibility.
Hope this helps.
