Ive never missed a bc pill and now im worried....

DH and I have a beautiful 17 month old daughter and do not want to start trying for baby number 2 untill she is about 2 years old or a little older. So I have been on birth control pills, of course. I take them at night, and the night of Dec. 27th I forgot my pill. It was the last active pill in my pack before I went on to my placebo (sp?). Dh and I had sex either that night or the night after, I cant remember. But the day after we had sex I started my period. It wasnt a long one, a few days and kinda light. My mind is telling me there is nothing to worry about becasue I started my period and it was the first pill I have ever missed and stuff. But my body feels like a different story. I have been moody beyond all hell, emotional, a tiny bit nausiated here and there for no reason.... Im just wondering if anyone else has benen through a similar situation and did or did not get pregnant by it...? We are so not ready for a another baby, but if we are pregnant we would be thrilled im sure =) Im just wanting to know what my chances are,if any. Im thinking its very, very, very low chances I am pregnant, I just need some reassurance. Thanks.

  • Also along with that, if I do end up testing, would I have to wait till the end of the month around when my next period should be, or can I test now? When we found I was pregnant with DD I was almost 3.5 months along (its a long story but my cycles were not regualr and I didnt notice any symptoms till about whhen I decided to test).... So I dont really know what to do here....

  • there is a possiblilty but the chances are slim. wait till the end of the month to test, it would be too early to test now.

  • I really doubt it. I would miss pills all the time before we stated TTC. Missing one shouldn't affect anything. Of course, anything's possible, but it's very unlikely in this situation!

  • I seriously doubt u are, did u take the pill u missed as soon as u remembered? If u r that concerned then go to ur OBGYN and have a blood test done, otherwise u can take a hpt but the results will not b accurate until a few days after u would have missed a period (if u do miss it ) But I seriously think u have nothing to worry about! p.s. If u REALLY believe that u r preggers than I would discontinue ur BC pills asap!
