I have been on the pill for almost 3 years, and have accidentally done this many times with no after affects. I am on a 3 month cycle, and last cycle I took a period after 2 months. I am in a new cycle now, and even though I am taking the pill which stops my period I am having a period. It is incredibly painful and heavy almost like before I started medication. My peers say it’s just because I took one early, but I’ve done that before and nothing has happened. Either way the pill should stop my period and even though I’m taking currently I’m still having one. Is this normal??

Welcome to this forum.
You might have such a severe flow if you deliberately stop the normal flow pattern for such a long time. You should restart the pills and a double dosing for few days initially will help you to lessen the flow temporarily. Also you might need some tranaxaemic acid along with them to control the flow. However, if the flow is very heavy, don't wait more. Meet your doctor for an opinion as a heavy flow could make you sick and anemic.
Hope I can address your query. Please visit your doctor if there is any further confusion as without a clinical examination it is not possible to opine through an online medical forum.
