If you stop birth control a week early would you get af early i ask because i missed 2 pill's and i remember from my ttc days that a cervix can be high soft and closed well mine is high soft and the opening feel's flat and closed...kind of hoping i can see if i get af or if i miss af early.

Usually yes your period comes early in this cases, because it's not a true period, it's caused by the withdrawal of the hormones in the active pills.

Edit I think you would have to miss more than 2 pills though. Sex probably isn't safe without backup right now though.

i think it can. It is also likely to be irregular for a bit while your body learns to regular itself again. I wouldn't have unprotected sex bc it is possible you could get pregnant.

Well you have 1 of 2 options at this point, you can either NOT TAKE the pills for another 5 days, so 7 altogether as you usually would, and you should get the usual pill period....Or double up on pills for 2 days so that you take the ones you missed, and get it next week...

If you have missed several it is best to wait until the following sunday and start a new pack. Throw the old one away.
