In brief: Expected

Alesse is a 20 mcg dose pill and works best when taken every day at the same time.
Withdrawal bleeds are expected if you miss a day and taking the two pills the next day was a good idea. However, better safe than sorry, use condoms until you start a new pack to prevent pregnancy from breakthrough ovulation. Otherwise, continue your pills daily as before and your cycle should normalize soon.
