Most likely ok: As long as you haven't missed any pills, and your pregnancy test is negative, I wouldn't worry. Keep taking your pills as scheduled. Some women will skip, don't have menses or have very light scant flow on the newer lo dose pills. If you get any symptoms of pregnancy though, do another pregnancy test or check in with your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test.
