My ex girlfriend was on the pill. after we broke up she decided to get off of it. We were in the middle of our break up when she had her last withdrawal bleeding. She took the first week or so of pills. She then stopped taking them, and 5 days later she got another period, 2 weeks before it was due. what could this be caused be. We haven't had any sexual contact in a LONG time, and i do not believe pregnancy is a big risk here. What could have cause her period to come so early?

Not taking BC pills as directed (like stopping partway though, as happened here) can cause unexpected bleeding. It's no big deal, and is very likely something that was mentioned in the insert that came with her pills.
