I was just wondering what happens if you miss to many birth control pills and tries to play catch up but miss like a week of them?

Do I go to my doctor to get a brand new pack or do I continue to play catch up?

  • Gosh girl.. don't try to play catch up. I took three at once one time and thought I was going to die from the cramps. I think just use protection and continue on.. but someone might say different than me. You could check with your Dr.

  • Pregnancy; you need to take them the same time each day for 100% protection from pregnancy

  • If you miss more than 2 you have to start a new pack. use protection if you dont' want another baby just yet....

  • I missed two and thought after taking them religously for 4 1/2 years. I could just make them up and it wouldnt be a problem. 6 weeks later I found out we are expecting baby number 3. DONT JUST TRY TO MAKE THEM UP!!!!
