You would need to miss about 5 - 7 pills to induce a period flow. A urine pregnancy test would be quicker and safer than skipping pills.

Do you want to do pregnancy test instead? Interrupting contraception will make you vulnerable for pregnancy. In general, oral contraceptives when taken regularly have >97% success rate. Please do not worry, Your Ob/Gyn can give more assurance and advice. Hope it helps.

Please see your Gynecologist for a thorough examination and recommendations. If you are not confident in your Doctor please see another for a second opinion.
