Good morningCustomer my name is Melissa. Have you taken a pregnancy test to be sure you are not pregnant? If not you should. I would also recommend you make an appointment with your ob gyn doctor, so a pelvic exam can be done. Sometimes when women stop using the pill, they have these irregularities, but it is always better to be safe. Especially since you have had it 20 days already.
