Skipping a pill puts you at risk of pregnancy and can effect your menstrual cycle. Missing a pill usually causes your period to arrive earlier than usual. Because you've missed your period, perform a pregnancy test.

As long as you didn't go more than seven days without an active pill, you are not at increased risk of pregnancy. Skipping your period by taking the pill continuously decreases, not increases, the risk of pregnancy.

Skipping your period on the birth control pill, whether it happens with normal use or because you skipped the placebo week on purpose, isn't bad. It doesn't increase the risk of pregnancy, and causes no damage.

The pill does not stop you from having your period. Having lighter periods or skipping some are normal. But you should still have your period otherwise you may be pregnant.

No, if you miss your period on the pill you should go see your doctor immediately.

Yes skipping periods is perfectly normal. Some women don't have there period at all while on the pill.

Hi, When you skip a sugar pill this does not effect your cycle. Skipping a active pill will effect your cycle. Skipping one active pill not only causes your period to arrive earlier but also puts you at risk of pregnancy. Skipping more than one active pill and the risk increases. See your doctor for a bloo test to determine if you've conceived or not. Meanwhile use a condom every time you have intercourse.

There is a very small chance you may miss your first period after starting the pill, but if you don't miss any pills then you shouldn't miss your period - still it does sometimes happen. Usually though most women will experience some form a vaginal bleeding.

If you forget to take you pill there is a chance that you could be pregnant.

unfortunately yes there is a risk that you could be ovulating at that time and get pregnant.

If you're skipping some placebo pills, start the next pack at the very first pill.

Not really. If you took the pills in the right order and did not miss a pill, you should have started your period after the last pill. If you don't get in a day or two, I would take a pregnancy test.
