Often : Often times when you miss a pill your hormone levels are off thus resulting in spotting or light bleeding. On the other hand the fact that you missed a pill puts you at risk for pregnancy. So implanttaion bleeding is a possibility. You should have started your period by now or be expecting it soon. If it does not come take a pregnancy test. Good luck.
