Missed birth control pills and now spotting for a week, should I stop the pack and let the cycle start over?

In brief: Breakthrough bleed

You can take your pills twice daily for 5 to 10 days to see if the bleeding stops, skip the placebo pills and start the new pack right away.
Treat the new pack as you would normally. Also contact your doctor so they are aware. Good luck!
