Absolutely! You missed 4 pills so you will probably get a full blown period for a lot longer than normal. You will prob spot up until you are scheduled for your period. Then you will get your normal period. If you are having sex be sure to use extra protection so you don't get pregnant. Hello. Yes missing birth control pills can cause you to spot. You spot blood because your body is trying to adust to being without the contraceptive hormones. Use a condom for the next week during sex otherwise you will be at risk of conceiving.

Yes, it is normal to spot or have a withdrawal bleed after missing 4 Birth Control pills.

Hormonal birth control suppresses your menstrual cycles to stop ovulation, the bleeding you normally see every month is a withdrawal bleed meant to mimic menstruation that is caused by the drop in hormones when going from active to inactive pills. So when you miss pills you're essentially seeing a withdrawal bleed brought on by that drop in hormones from missing the active pills.

If you have missed your pills then you need to make sure to use another form of birth control in order to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
