Lo Loestrin-one Missed Blue Pill

I've been on lo loestrin for almost 4 months now. I just finished a period early part of last week, missed a blue pill on Monday, I took two blue pills Tuesday morning and by lunch another period started. This doesn't seem right to me. The flow has been light to moderate the whole time. Would skipping one blue pill actually make me start again?

Hello, Tootie! How are you?

When you're taking oral contraceptives, you don't have a real period, what you experience is a withdrawal bleed, because there are no hormones in the period week tablets, thus, anytime you miss a pill you could start bleeding, again. It is perfectly normal, it can also be compounded by the fact that you doubled up, which then gave a higher dose of hormones for that day.

Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and weight changes.

Things should settle back down, once your hormones balance back out, but it may take a week, or two. If not, then you should consult your doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?
