I think it can be, I was on the combined pill for years and occasionally missed one out. At one point I got v panicked and went to Doc for Morning after pill, but she explained that with the combined one you have 7 days off each month and don't risk pregnancy during that time even if you have intercourse (yuck) so I was told to just not take the 7 days break that time and carry on with the next packet.

I quite often bled a little during pill taking, it's not uncommon.

This does only apply to the combined pill tho, not the mini pill.

HTH a little, might be worth checking with your pharmacist (you can get emergency contraception from them now)
