Patient : I've been on birth control for about 10 months now. I started out on N econ 1 25 and was heaving breakthrough bleeding so my doctor switched me to N econ 1 50. Ive been on that about 8 months of the 10. I haven't had any breakthrough bleeding with it. I forgot to take one of my pills so I doubled up the next day. (The day after). I've been bleeding like my period for the last 4 days. I've forgotten a pill before and just doubled up with out any breakthrough bleeding. I'm I just breakthrough bleeding or is it something else?
