After 2 months of missing a bc pill or 2 a month, i've had a solid month of taking them on time. Safe to assume my hormones are a little out of whack?

This can significantly reduce contraceptive effectiveness, and lead to changes in period frequency. Good that you are back to taking them every day. Your hormones are probably back on track too. If you continue to miss pills, discuss other birth control methods with your dr. ...Read more
