Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
Microgynon 30 contains ethinylestradiol and levonorgestrel. It is prescribed to get lighter, less painful and more regular menstrual bleeding.
Yes, it is common to have slight bleeding/ spotting after missing
2 pills, in a row.
Usually, doctor advise, to start a new pack after missing 2 pills, in a row.
Though chances of getting pregnancy are slim, as you didn't had sex in fertile period.
The Ovulation usually takes place 14 days after the beginning of your menstrual cycle.
For women with a 28-day cycle, the 14th day is often the day of ovulation.
Though chances are slim, still i would suggest that you can get a urine pregnancy after 1 week.
Please start with a new pack.
Good luck and take care.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.

So you suggest I leave the pills in the current pack that I'm taking and start a new pack now? I took a pill last night so should I take one this morning or wait till this evening to take another pill? Even though I'm bleeding can I still take a pregnancy test??
Expert:  Dr. Robert replied 2 years ago.
Dear,
Yes, you should leave this current pack, and start a new one.
From today morning only, you can start with a new pack. It would be effective.
Regarding pregnancy test, you can wait for 1 week, and check it by next Monday. Chances of pregnancy are slim.
I hope this helps.

So I start a new pack this morning, can I take a pill this evening aswell or wait till tomorrow morning to take a new one? How long will the bleeding last?
Expert:  Dr. Robert replied 2 years ago.
Dear,
Yes, you can start with a new pack today, and take pill this evening.
Most likely in next 2-3 days, bleeding/ spotting would automatically stop. It is self limiting in nature.
I hope this helps.
