Welcome to ehealthforum.
The bleeding can suggest abnormality. If you have missed more than 2 pills at a time, then they are no longer effective. Any unprotected intercourse during the period cycle can result in pregnancy.
Report to your gynecologist for a thorough check and tests to rule out chances of pregnancy before you start on the next pack of pills. Consider changing to alternate forms of birth control if you tend to forget taking pills regularly.
