Dear customer,

The birth control pills work on the principle of breakthrough bleeding that is when the hormonal drugs are withdrawn then the bleeding occurs which presents as periods.

Since you have misssed/stopped the birth pills for 7 days so the bleeding happened due to withdrawl of hormones.

One get pregnant when a woman have intercourse 14 days prior to the expected next menstrual period which is the time of ovulation as well.

You need not double the dose now and instead start the fresh course of the birth pills after stopping of the bleeding if you want to continue the birth pills.

If you wanna get pregnent then you should stop birth pills and be on the natural cycle.

Let me know here, if you need any more info.

Please rate me positive if you are satisfied with the service.

Thank you

I still have to do my IVF procedure this period is very painfully and it doesn't feel like a period very heavy and uncomfortable.

Dear customer,

It is due to the withdrawl of hormones present in the bith control pills and its effect. Once you are again on the birth control pills then the period will stop.

Let me know if you have any doubt still.

Thank you very much for your help. I feel like my period is coming now because before the one month birth control my period was this time can it be going back to the way it was?

Dear customer,

If you continue the pills then the bleeding will occur during the time the hormones are absent or when you take the iron pills only without any hormonal content.

IF you stop the pills alltogether then it may take a few months for the hormonal imbalance to correct itself and then you will have again normal menstrual cycle.

Let me know if you have any doubt still.

Thank you
