is it normal to miss two periods after switching birth control pills?

Dr. Peter Baumann
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Possible: Missing periods while on a birth control pill is not unusual. If a woman misses periods after switching birth control pills, a home pregnancy test may provide reassurance that missing the period is attributable to the new pill and not to a pregnancy.
