    Period help
    Went on pill in August
    First month took 21 pills
    Had period day five
    Then decided to keep taking two batches to skip the next period then wanted to take this one
    Day 5 had a bleed for an hour
    Is this normal
    Had sex without condom pulled out

    If you only started taking the pill in August, then your body is likely still adjusting to it - doctors usually advise at least 3 months before it reaches full effectiveness. So yes that is relatively normal. If you are worried about being pregnant, the best thing to do is go and take a pregnancy test (sexual health clinic or pharmacy). I'd advise against the pulling out method of contraception altogether, especially when your body is adjusting to the contraceptive pill, it's not worth the risk!
