Take BCPs as instruc: If you miss a dose of your birth control pill (Femilon), then restart the next day from the pill where you left off. If you are switching from one BCP to another, finish the course of one pill, then start taking the other pill. These are the usual rule for BCPs. Talk to your prescribing doctor for more information & directions, esp to get the "other" contraception pills. Or use HealthTap Prime. GL ...Read more

What to do if I missed a week of the pill?

Check for pregnancy: Missing a whole week would leave you unprotected for the time being and you should check for pregnancy, and then if you want to restart the pills, you can do so - at any time, but you may have some irregular bleeding as your body 'adjusts' to the hormones again. Need a back-up method of birth control for the next month after restarting the pills as well. ...Read more

One pill per day: Birth control pills are designed to be take once per day. If you take them once per day then you are doing it right. If you go more than 24 hours without taking it then you have missed a dose. I do not think the word choice of late or missed pills matters. ...Read more

I'm on my 5th month of bc pills. If I miss 1 pill during this month am I still protected.

Most likely: Birth control pills are not 100% effective, even if you take them correctly. The more you miss, the greater your chance of pregnancy. If you miss one, take it as soon as you realize it, plus your other pill for that day. Also use some other form of birth control for the remainder of that cycle. ...Read more

Missed a pill on the first Saturday of my new pack. I usually take my pills at 9pm but I took it at 9am on Sunday morning am I ok?

Probably: If you are taking a combined estrogen/progesterone pill, and took all of the first 7 pills on time, the you will likely be ok. Unless you miss 3 pills of combined pills you shouldn't need back up contraception or Plan B. If you are taking the "mini" pill (progesterone only pill, micronor) then you will need a backup method of contraception for this cycle (condoms) with 1 missed dose to be safe. ...Read more

Missed BCP: I would simply to keep things straight although your protection may NOT be as it should for the next cycle. Modern birth control pills have very low levels of hormone and missing pills can cause issues. If you miss one day - double up the NEXT day. Any more misses requires a backup method - ie condom for the next complete cycle. Good luck ...Read more

On the same pill for about 2 years now and I missed my pill this month by 2 hours And I've had brown consistent discharge for 11 days now. Help?

Likely breakthrough: If you HAD to have a medicine absolutely on time, you'd be in the hospital and an RN would be giving it to you. Off by 2 hours will not dramatically impact its effectiveness. Call or see your Gyn, though, as may be having breakthrough or other issue that needs addressed. ...Read more
