    I'm on the combined pill, the one where you take it for 21 days and then don't take anything for 7 days. I forgot to take my pill yesterday, and I didn't remember to take my one for today until about an hour ago, when I took two like you're supposed to when you miss one. But I went to the toilet and I've started bleeding? It's not that much, but is it my period, or could it just be spotting? And if it won't stop naturally is there any way to stop it? I'm on holiday and didn't think to bring anything with me because I wasn't supposed to be on my period this week, and I only have two tampons that I had in my makeup bag. I'm away with my dad so I don't really want to have to ask him to take me to try and find a shop that sells sanitary products, and I still havs 5 days my holiday left. I'm not sexually active so have no risk of pregnancy, I'm just worried about the bleeding.

    If memory serves thats not particularly uncommon and isnt anything to worry about but s with anything concerning body altering drugs and strange new happens it would be prudent to consult with your GP.

    It's most likely to do with the fact that you messed up the cycle a little bit and it's just your body adjusting! Don't worry about it but if it carries on much longer go and see your doctor
