Retest in 7-10 days: If your bc pill has estrogen in it, taking it a little late is not a big problem, missing pills is. Go to clinic and get tested in 10-14 days. Most common pregnancy signs: tender/swollen breasts, nausea/vomiting, frequent urination. Try condoms rather than withdrawal. Maybe check out using the patch, ring, or Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud, methods you don't have to remember daily. Discuss it with your doctor.
