    Pills before period??
    thankyou12355 posted:
    My wife was delayed with her period and she took 5 pills at once and never continued. Then, after a few weeks she had a period (I think), it was 1 day heavy bleeding with cramps then 3-4 days of light bleeding with small clots. Now she doesn't have any problems except pain in stomach. I want to know her condition now and if there are any problems.

    Yes. I couldn't believe it. I am very worried right now.
