Patient: I missed two of my birth control pills in a row and started spotting but continued to take my pills normally, now I have missed my period. Is this because I messed up my pills a week before my expected period or am I pregnant. Also I tend to miss at least 2 pills every month and my last period was not normal for me. It was early and very light, only there when I wiped, also very mucusy. I am 24 years old and sexually active.
