missed pills now getting period

I missed three pills in a row, and then got my period, at first i thought it was just some spotting because i missed so many pills but not its bleeding heavy like a normal period. I guess I'm wondering if that is normal, and if i should continue taking my pills or wait till this bleeding is over and start a new pack?

the Bleeding is normal, since u missed the pill for 3 days, ur body takes it as if you were taking ur last week pills which are inactive pills with no hormones... You should definatly start a new pack & Your period should stop by at least the second or third day of taking the pill....
