HALP! Missed 1 week of pills...

My freakin' pills were a week late being delivered by mail. So, I missed a Sun-Sat, and started my new pack on Sunday.. When are we safe again, after my next cycle?

  • it may be different for each brand, but the ones i've taken have always said use back up for a week and then you're ok. it should have come with a folded up paper that would have this info in it. try reading that to find that specific brand's recommendation.

  • For most birth control pills, you should use a back-up method for 7 days. Then you're good.

  • wow... why didnt you go pick them up yourself?! lol..

    every OB would suggest to wait about 2-4 weeks til its safe again. And i would go by that.
