Skipping a week of active pills

Patient: I have been on the pill for about 7 years. I take them continuously. This is the first time that the spotting has been really bad. I spotted brown blood for weeks and it was getting worse. I only had a week left of active pills before the sugar pills. I decided to skip the last week of active pills. Was this good or bad?

 

 

Symptoms: Spotting getting worse, brown in color. Started out every few days, then went to everyday.
