It depends what kind of BC you were using. If you still have the paper that comes with each package, it will tell you in there. If not, as long as it's only been 2 pills you can usually just take those and resume as normal. You also may get your period or spot for days until your next period. Trust me, two months of that, and now I take my pill religously.

You are not safe from getting pregnant and you should wait until the next month bbefore you start taking the pills again.

You should call your doctor or a pharmacist. But in my experience, you must wait until the Sun. after your period starts. On that Sun, start your pack of pills.

Birth Control pills are not long acting. That is why you have bleeding if you miss just 1 dose. If you have missed a week you can get pregnant. You will need to use a back up method until you can begin taking the pills again.

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.

You indeed can become pregnant if you missed 3 pills and are bleeding. The reason you would be bleeding or maybe spotting is because you're not taking the pills. If you've missed 3 pills in one pack, you should throw that pack away and start a new pack and definitely use backup protection!

Yes. You should continue taking your pill as scheduled, and take a pregnancy test if you missed any pills in the previous cycle.

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

well if you miss 8 pills you should always check ur pack then you can start counting

Starting a pack a day early is fine, you could have started it the previous Monday and missed your period completely. It is taking pills late that increases your risk of pregnancy.

NO if you missed the first pill of your second week you need to take 2 pills for each day that you skipped the pill. if you missed more than one day in between pills take 2 pills then one a day for a week so that you are protected again

No, you should continue taking the pills as scheduled. IF you missed any pills in the prior cycle, take a pregnancy test.

yes you can. if you know your partner wasn't wearing a condom you should really make sure you take your pill on a regular basis. and if you know you've missed a few pills, you should make sure your partner was wearing a condom.

99% no if you are taking the rest of the pills on time and not have missed any.

Hi This sounds like break-through bleeding and should not be happening. If you have missed any pills then this can cause break-through bleeding. If you haven't missed any pills see your Doctor and do not have unprotected sex.

It means you should take a pregnancy test. You cycles could be messed up. If you are not pregnant, they will get back to normal soon. But Again. Pregnancy test.

In some birth control brands, the green pills are active pills and should not be skipped. In other brands, the green pills are placebos (sugar pills or reminder pills) and can be skipped. Talk to your pharmacist or health care provider to get information specific to your brand of birth control pills.

It's completely upto you but you must know that birth control will not protect you against pregnancy until you've been taking it for one month and also have not missed any pills.

If you miss the entire first week of your pills than you should wait to take them again until the Sunday after your period, and you need to start from the beginning of your pack. You are able to become pregnant during this month, so be sure to use a different form of birth control such as condoms.

If you have missed your pill the day before, you should only take the missed pill as soon as you remember, and today's pill at the usual time, as directed in the FDA insert that came with your birth control pills.

Don't have sex. You should consult the information that came with your pills. It will explain what to do if you have missed one or more pills, accurately for your brand of pills. See the package insert for instructions, or call your doctor or pharmacist. It depends on what week you are in, etc.

No I wouldn't be worried, but you need to take your pills everyday. Take them the same time everyday that way you won't forget. I took mine as soon as I got up every morning. None stop without fail. The fact you didn't have your period on schedule is because you messed around with the pill cycle. Off and then on again. Goodness.

Missed nearly 40% of the pills.......maybe a condom should be used. Either that or congratulations are in order on your future pregnancy

If you missed pills you could be pregnant. Take a pregnancy test. The progestin only pill is not very forgiving of missed or late pills; consider whether another option might make more sense for you.

so by this question i guess you missed your birth control pills, but then started taking them again? Either way, most birth control pills you start 3 days after you take the last pill. But if you screw up your pills it can cause you to be a week late. Wait till your a week over, and if you still havent started get a pregnancy. Usually on birth control pills and girl cant get pregnant until a certain amount of time of taking them. But some do just by missing one.
