2 Bumps

birth control and periods.....

So the end of my first week of my pill I forgot one pill. I took two the next day like your supposed to do. A few days later I started bleeding from missing my pill. I bled for over a week. This past week was supposed to be when I got my "real period". I didn't get it. So now I'm nervous. Should I test before I start my new pack of pills just in case? I figured I would still get my normal period.

  • I would call your doctor and explain what happened. he might say come on in for a blood test to just make sure.

  • That happened to me before and I wasn't pregnant... you just got your period on a different week.
    I used to take that kind where you wouldn't get your period for 3 months... my doctor told me that it was safe for me to plan my period... like if i was going on vacation I could have my period the week before or the week after just by taking the pills in a different order.

  • I would say no need to be nervous! When you miss a pill and double up it can cause this.

  • Thanks all of you...I took a test last night to be safe before I started taking my pill. It was negative! Big relief!
