Missing pills is a common cause of break through bleeding. Often the abnormal bleeding lasts weeks after only one or two missed pills. The easiest way to correct break through bleeding is to stop the pill for a week and have a period. You can minimize the side effect of breakthrough bleeding by taking the pill continuously and not having a break to have a period. This is healthy and preferred. I hope this helps and answers your question.
