You should use a backup method (condoms only) for the next 2 weeks.

Yes, you can. Be sure to use a backup method of contraception!

If you missed the pill and got your period, continue taking the pill as scheduled. Consider using the morning after pill if you had sex in the last five days. Use a backup method until you've taken seven pills correctly.

The pill doesn't give you a withdrawal bleed. The only time the pill gives you a bleed is during your "off pill" days (7 days) when your period is expected. Using the withdrawal method as backup will NOT protect you from pregnancy. Withdrawal is NOT a backup method since you become pregnant from this method just as you do from full sex. You need to be using a backup method of protection in the form of condoms for the first 4-5 weeks of taking the pill. If you dont you run the risk of pregnancy.

If you missed tow pills and had breakthrough bleeding, resuming your pills should stop the bleeding. However, since you missed two pills you are not protected this month, so use a backup method of birth control.

4 days before your missed period= 53% accurate 3 days before your missed period= 74% 2 days before your missed period= 84% 1 day before your missed period = 87% The day of you expected period = 99%

Nausea. You can't catch up on six missed pills. Use a backup method until you've taken 7 pills correctly. If you have had sex in the last five days, take emergency contraception. If you prefer, discard this pack and start the next, but six missed pills really makes that cycle a wash.

Home pregnancy tests are designed to be used AFTER your missed period. Using it 2 weeks before a missed period could skew the results.

It means that if your period is supposed to start on Saturday, 6 days before your missed period would be the Tuesday before.

Well you could! Some people may get nauseated before the missed period! It all depends!!!

absolutly, women have symptoms within days of conception even way before their missed period

You may ovulate straight away or you may not ovulate forseven days. You need to continue taking your pills as normal and you will also need to use a backup method of protection for seven days because you missed pills.

User Avatar

Yes, that's a great plan for minimizing the risk of pregnancy.Abstinence for that period of time would work also.

A little before your missed period and obviously after your missed period also.

A backup method of birth control is suggested during the first month on the pill. The pill is 99.7%-99.9% effective if used perfectly! Effectiveness in the general population is only 97% due to missed pills etc. This means that 3 women in 100 wil get pregnant on the pill.

I found out 6 days before my missed period with a 5 day sooner pregnancy test. I would wait atleast until the 6th or 5th day before your missed period. Or with a normal test they day before or of your missed period. :)

User Avatar

usually 1 week worth of pills that are missed..i know i am on them

User Avatar

Not always. I would wait until you have actually missed your period before you take a test

User Avatar

Taking a pregnancy test seven days before a missed period won't be accurate.

User Avatar

If you have missed your period and are pregnant, you most likely got pregnant around 14 days before your missed period.

User Avatar

You missed them - they started 8 of August and have finished.

User Avatar

not really it could be starting late

User Avatar

There is only one test that I know of that can detect the pregnancy hormone five days before your missed period.

User Avatar

You are right to start the new pack a day early. As long as you haven't gone more than seven days for your placebo week, no backup method is needed.
