Bleeding is generally a sign that your uterus is shedding it's lining because an egg was not fertilized and implanted into the wall. Therefore, if you are a bleeding fairly heavily, it is likely you are not pregnant, but it still could be a sign of other problems (i.e. not taking your bc regularly enough, hormone dose not being appropriate, etc.). I had similar experiences when I was on Ortho, but breakthrough bleeding was always worse when I skipped the placebos in order to skip my period. If you are interested in skipping your period and have difficulty remembering to take the pill the same time everyday, consider Nuvaring. I've been on it for my second month now and I'm really liking it. It took me a little while to get used to it, but you can wear it for four weeks at a time and when you have your periods, they are very, very light. Plus, there's nothing to take everyday. Just a thought.

Thanks...I am bleeding pretty heavily, just like in a period so I'm hoping it's the uterus shedding it's lining. I have decided to take a pregnancy test in a couple of days regardless...just to be sure.

As for the hormone levels I've been under a LOT of stress lately so that might've been it too.

Nuvaring is something I'll prolly consider in the future...just not right now.
