I forgot to take my pill!

OK, so life happens and last week while prepping for vacation, I just zonked out and went to bed without taking my birth control pill... completely blanked. So should I worry about it as much as I am? Should I take a pregnancy test or wait until I've missed my period (in a week and a half...)? I might be overreacting, but I just want peace of mind...

  • I think that you will be okay. I have done the same thing many times and I was never pregnant. I think that you would have to miss quite a few to be ovulating.

  • Youre probably fine. Take a test.

  • Read the directions that come with the pill pack... it has specific instructions on what to do in this case!! Or call a Pharmacist.

  • Your probably fine but wait until your missed period and take a test.

  • It's probably too early to get a positive result. It's best to take a test 14-19 days after assumed conception date.
