Yes, you are right. So I stopped taking pills on August 12 and restarted from September 16. So, it's not 28 days. In between I had my normal cramps periods early September, as I was without pills. I guess I am now almost over with my quite normal periods for October (which usually lasts 3-4 days for me without pills). I hope I am not confusing you more. But I did not get what you meant by 'breakthrough' bleeding here, is it because I restarted pills past 28 days or more?
So, I guess I need to wait one more cycle, to see what happens.

I think I have an unusual problem, or probably it's very normal, the experts can say.
So, I was on Microgestion BCPs for 3 months, everything was fine: I had scanty periods (lasting 1 day maximum) during my placebo week and breakthrough bleedings when I missed pills (which is also normal).
I stopped taking those, as my husband and I meet pretty infrequently (long distance relation). Then I restarted it after 1 month, calculating the placebo week, as I did not wish to have my periods during my swimming lessons. I started having usual cramps and bleeding during the 2nd week of pills (around the same date as if I am not taking any pills and having normal menses). It's not even my placebo week and it's the same pills, no new medicines!
I am concerned and confused as to why this is happening. Is my body or hormones taking time to adapt to the 1 month gap? Should I wait for 2 more cycles to see what happens?
