OCPs: Depends. Are you taking your pills at the same time each day? Do you miss any pills and then double up? If yes then probably a result of how you are taking the pills. If you do take at same time and not missed any pills then you should see your doctor to re-evaluate the pill and possibly switch to a pill that may work better for you.
