I just started bcp this month, last Saturday I had to take my pill about 5 hours earlier than normal and had darker break through bleeding for 4 days after. Can taking my pill earlier be the cause of that?

If bleeding continues see yiur doctor for an exam and medicine change. If break through bleeding then worry bcp may not stop pregnancy so abstain from sex or use more protection. I hope this finds you well. ...Read more
