Missing a Birth Control pill can result in breakthrough bleeding. As the hormone level in your body drops, bleeding can occur.

Can the bleeding after missing a birth control pill be seen as menstrual?

When you're taking the birth control pill, you don't have a menstrual period. Instead, you have withdrawal bleeding. Menstrual periods are vaginal bleeding the follows ovulation by 14 days.

Whether you have unscheduled bleeding from missing a pill or scheduled bleeding during your placebo week, neither is called a menstrual period.

Why does missing birth control pills cause bleeding?

When taking birth control pills the bleeding you get each month is withdrawal bleeding and not a "regular" period that comes on its own. So when you miss a few pills the withdrawal from them starts up the bleeding. The steady hormones in the pill keep the uterine lining thin. When you skip the pill for a few days, the pill hormone levels go way down (it takes the body about 24 hrs to eliminate the hormones in one pill). This withdrawal of pill hormones destabilizes the uterine lining and you get spotting/bleeding [thus, the name: withdrawal bleeding].

Can you have breakthrough bleeding after you stop taking the pill?

In terms of word choice, "breakthrough bleeding" is bleeding when you expect the hormones in birth control to stop bleeding. On the other hand, "withdrawal bleeding" is what you have when you stop taking active pills -- whether temporarily, as during the pill-free interval, or when you quit the pill altogether. It's normal to have a withdrawal bleed after stopping the pill. You can expect a normal period in four to six weeks.
