Missed period birth control pill

Common Questions and Answers about Missed period birth control pill


Avatar f tn If you don't stop taking birth control, you won't start your period. You have to stop it for awhile to start it.
Avatar f tn Hi there, Antibiotics may decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills and doctor may recommend additional back up form of birth control (such as condoms) while you are taking birth control pills. Azithromycin usually does not cause this interaction, but it is best to check it with your doctor to get their opinion. Few women may notice slight changes in their menstrual cycles like in number of days, or heaviness of flow after they have taken antibiotics.
Avatar n tn Remember that if you miss more than one pill in a month, you should use back-up birth control. In order to calculate pregnancy possibilities, you should count backwards to your ORIGINAL period date...and I would test anyway, just to be on the safe side. You can purchase HPT's cheaply at the local Dollar Store, and my OB said they are exactly the same as the expensive ones!!! The only reason I say to test, because I certainly don't think you are preg.
Avatar n tn I lost a birth control pill earlier this week but didn't do anything about it. The next day I just took my pill as scheduled and so on. Now it is Saturday (this happened on Monday or Tuesday) and i am on my last blue active pill of Sprintec 28 ( been on for 6 months now). What should I expect? I remember two years ago when I missed three active pills I got my period for entire month and earlier this year I took plan b and broke out in horrible acne for that week.
Avatar f tn I missed one pill and three weeks later found out I was pregnant
Avatar n tn I recently went out of town and left my birth control at home. I missed three pills. I had just started a new pack and had only taken 10 of them. a few days after i missed those pills I started bleeding again as if I was having another period but I had just had one 10 days earlier. Well I thought that I was supposed to start again about 9 days ago according to my original period but I didnt. I took 2 home pregnancy tests and they were both negative.
Avatar n tn We had not had sex since the birth of my son. Before starting the pill, I had not had a period post-partum yet. I am now concerned that there may be a chance for pregnancy since I did not use back-up protection. After 8 days on the pill, was I protected from pregnancy even though I had not had a period? What are the chances that a pregnancy could occur? I am sure the odds are slim, but I'm still concerned since are done having children.
Avatar f tn i missed 4 birth control pills in the second week of my pack in a row. usually if i missed a couple pills i will bleed but im not bleeding at all. i am cramping a lot mainly in my left ovary. i had unprotected sex 3 out of the 4 days ive missed my pills. and the reason iam not taking my pills is because i lost them. should i be worried if im not having breakthrough bleeding?
Avatar f tn If you miss a pill, you may become pregnant if you have sex in the 7 days after your missed pill. You MUST use another birth control method (such as condoms or spermicides) as a back-up for those 7 days. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If you don't know what else to do (these instructions are tricky!), keep taking your pills and use a back up method until you can talk to your health care provider.
Avatar n tn I have a question about the birth control pill. I am currently on Yaz and have been for about 6 months now. Last month, I missed a pill but made it up the next day when i remembered. I did this two times the entire month but on seperate weeks (both times making up the pill the next morning). I also was not able to take it at the exact same time each night due to busy schedule.
Avatar n tn Is it normal to miss your period even when you are on Birth Control? I lost pill number 17, but didn't have sex that day. I took pill number 18 and had sex about 10 hours later and took pill number 19 at the same time as the day before(1pm) and had sex afterwards. Does losing a pill interfere with the WHOLE month cycle?
Avatar n tn my boyfriend wears condoms however while taking my last packet, we didn't not to use condom since i'm on birth control but we have been using condoms since. i've read its normal to miss a period on the pill, is it?
Avatar n tn This time I wasn't as careful and forgot to take the pill twice. Once I made up for the missed pill and the second time I didn't realize i had missed one until the end of the pack. I had intercourse twice in that time and neither time did my boyfriend ejaculate inside of me. I am now two days late with my period. I've taken a pregnancy test that has come back negative and am planning to take another if i don't get my period in a few more days.
Avatar m tn I have been taking Birth Control for a year now, I havent missed a pill and always took the pills within 3 hours of each other. Though, this past month me and my boyfriend just kinda fooled around without protection but he didnt actually finish. We fooled around on a Saturday, 2 days later I fell asleep and took the pill about 8 hours late (this was my first missed pill) , the day after I started having some light pink but mostly brown spotting and it lasted for about 4 days.
Avatar n tn When you miss a birth control pill your body thinks it's time to start a period so normally that's what it does. I wouldn't think shes pregnant, but you can always take a test to be 100% sure.
Avatar n tn Well, I'm new to the whole Birth Control thing and I missed a Thursday and Friday pill i took them on saturday then took the saturday and sunday pill on sunday like it said i should. But then i recently got this bleeding thats really heavy, I had unprotected sex during the time i missed my birth control but i highly doubt i am pregnant. I was just wondering, if it was breakthrough bleeding would it be lighter? cause this is really heavy almost like a normal period.
Avatar n tn Ok, approx. mid March I took my last birth control before the placebo week a day late. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex the day of the missed pill because I didn't even realize I had missed it, we were on vacation. I realized the next morning the pill was still sitting in the dispenser. Anywho, my period was a few days late and when it came I just spotted. However, I continued taking the pills like usual and my periods have been normal since.
