PCOS: You may have polycystic ovary syndrome. This may also cause some changes in hormone levels that may cause irregular cycles, some male type hormones that cause abnormal hair growth, acne, or other abnormal patterns with your period. Some people report weight changes and other symptoms. You should monitor your cycles for a couple of months to see if there is a pattern.

See your GYN: Breakthrough bleeding on ultra-low dose pills is not uncommon. Presuming you are not pregnant, your gyn may be able to prescribe some supplementary estrogen on a short term basis to correct the problem. If it recurs frequently a change to a different formulation of birth control pill may be in order.See 1 more doctor answer
Different options: Some pills have a sunday start and you just start them the first sunday after your period starts. Others have stickers so you can start on any day. With these you can either start the first day of your period or the first day you get your prescription. Talk to your doctor about the differences in time until you're protected and side effects with the different options.
All the same: All birth control pills are more than 95% effective with typical use, but consider a long acting, reversible method of birth control like an implant or IUD so that you don't have to remember to take a birth control pill. Easy to place and fewer side effects as well because they provide a sustained release of hormones at a low dose, so they're very safe!
Depends on week : The number of pills missed, the strength of the pill and the week in question all impact the management. If you miss 1 - 2 pills of a 30 mcg ee formulation or 1 (active) pill of a 10-20 mcg ee pill, take 1 pill (active) as soon as you remember, then continue taking the pill pack. In cases when the missed pills are from the first week, a back-up method or emergency contraception may be needed.See 1 more doctor answer
Not taking it right: Antibiotics, if you get nauseated and vomit, and other meds, if you are on something chronically your phamacist should be able to tell you if there is interaction with the pill.
May not have any: Depends on the person, some people don't notice anything, some people may get pain at ovulation, may have heavier or more cramps on their periods, may have longer periods, may get some pms symptoms, may get pregnant, if you are having problems you should see your gyn for an exam and work up.
No help!!!: Ocps are to protect you from pregnancy and to control bleeding. To start a pill in the middle would not help eather one. So you are spending $ and taking meds without benefits. It is better to wait for your next cycle and start them then.
