That : That is unusual given that you just missed one pill. It is appropriate that you took two the next day. Observe your bleeding pattern and if it doesn't resolve over the next few days then please be evaluated. If you are at all concerned about infection then please be checked, although the discharge sounds more like it might have been spotting. Your symptoms should resolve but if not then please be evaluated.
