Take all pills: I recommend that you take all of your pills. I've seen cases when a bleeding stopped on day 9 and sometimes 10. If the bleeding fails to stop, contact your physician. You may need further investigation or another form of therapy.

Is there any evidence that viable cells are in the menstrual flow?

Yes: Endometriosis is a condition in which endometrial cells (cells from uterine lining) grow in locations other than inside the uterus. We know that women experience "retrograde flow", or flow of menses back thru the fallopian tubes and into the pelvis. Usually, the body resorbs the material, but sometimes these "viable" cells take hold and live in the abdominal cavity.
