I'm 32 on the pill over a year,I have had breast pain both arm sides over a week,due for 7d break on Tue,I missed 2 pills,douled dose to catch up?
Was on the pill dilligently but missed last active pill. Took two plan b on the same day right after that. Period late 4 days, hpt negative. Could the delay be due to the double plan b dose??

Even if ovulation occurs conception may still be prevented as the hormones in the pill thicken the cervical mucus, preventing entry of sperm into the uterus. They can also change the lining and motility of the fallopian tubes such that the egg is not transported to the uterus. ...Read more
Yes: The oral contraceptive pills are intended, due to their low dosages, to be taken every day about the same time each day.If that is not the case use a "back up" means of contraception until the next period and get a pregnancy test if it is a "no show" anecdotally, "the pill is only 100% effective if held between your knees at all times.". ...Read more
