Birth control

I am currently on the pill for birth control but I am a little worried that I might be pregnant because my nipples are sensitive and tingley (and have been for about a week) and I have been tired a lot. Last month I forgot to take my last two reminder pills and then couldn't get my prescription filled until Monday night so I then took Sunday and Monday's pills when I got them that night. My pill info says that If you miss one to take it when you remember and then take then next one at regular time and that you wouldn't have to use a backup method. But I wasn't thinking about the fact that I didn't take the reminder pills. I just started my last week of pills before my period week. So my question is Do the reminder pills really do anything? And do you think there is a good chance I might be pregnate or slight?

  • The reminder pills do NOTHING. They are just for a reminder. You shouldn't take two doses at once but I think you should be fine.
