I’m on birth control (nortrel 1/35 I believe) On Friday,

Patient: I’m on birth control (nortrel 1/35 I believe). On Friday, after i took an estrogen pill, I thought I had one week (the placebo pills) left. So I didn’t take it Saturday mornings, Sunday morning. But Sunday night I looked and saw I somehow misread it. I had one week of the actual pills before the placebo so I took the two I missed Saturday and Sunday morning, that Sunday night. I had already started spotting and I took my pill yesterday morning. But I’m wondering should I finish it, or just stop since I started to spot?
