Because you missed 4 pills you are not protected against pregnancy. You must use a back up method of protection - a condom for the next 2 weeks to prevent pregnancy. You must also continue to take Birth Control as normal.

Could you be pregnant if while on the pill you didn't get your period and you spotted for 4 days after you missed the pill?

You missed a pill 4 days after period could you be pregnant?

It depends on when you ovulate. Your body might not have ovulated yet but there is still a chance you could be pregnant. It takes seven days of regular pill taking after your period to make it affective. I am in the same boat I missed my seventh pill and I am losing my mind. Most women do not ovulate until eight days after their period so hopefully you and I are safe :)

Do start pill before or after your period?

If you're just starting the pill, it's best to take the pill on the first day of your period. My GYN told me that you can also start the pill the Sunday following the start of your period... That way, it's easier to keep track of whether or not you took/missed your pill that day.

How does a missed birth control pill affect your period?

Hi there. A missed BC pill can cause you to be more at risk of pregnancy and it can make your period a day late. It is perfectly fine to miss one pill if you take the next one on time!

I missed two days of my birth control Tri-Nessa and took them but now I have light bleeding that has lasted for five days if I start a new pack will I get my period?

Now that I am not limited to 150 characters or so... I missed my pill for two days and took both of them at the same time the morning of the third day after I missed the first pill. I have had light bleeding for about five days now. My question is this: I know that if you miss three days you are supposed to just start a new pack. But if I do this will I get my period? I'd rather deal with the light bleeding than get my period, my boyfriend is coming home this weekend and I don't want things to get ruined.
