  • there is something about rubbing the spot between your thumb and first finger that will not only stop your period but make you ovulate... google it and good luck!

  • The only way I know is on certain birth control methods.

  • Start a new pack

  • Ask your pharmacist. Forgetting a pill or 2 (so long as they aren't in a row) may have no effect.

  • Be careful about just doubling up. Read the directions that came with your birth control carefully! If you regularly miss pills, you may want to consider another form of birth control. Have you thought about possibly something like the shot or NuvaRing?
