In brief: Stress bleeding

Many different types of stress including physical and mental stress from infections can cause breakthrough bleeding.
Anything that can throw your natural hormone cycles out of alignment can disrupt the naturally occurring cycle that controls bleeding. Also the birth control alone can cause breakthrough bleeding for several different reasons. If you missed doses that could be a cause of breakthrough bleeding.
