Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.While taking contraceptive pills, some amount of menstrual ir regularities 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.Take care.
