Missed 2 Pills In First Week
On minulet pill, missed the last day of my previous pack took my7 day break then missed 2 pills in the first week and one I the second could I be preg?
Sure: Women who take their birth control pills INCORRECTLY do have a higher chance of getting pregnant than do women who take their pills correctly. That means a woman who doesn't take her pills correctly should add a second method of contraception, such as condoms. She can ask her doctor about other methods such as an IUD, which needs no daily pill-taking. ...Read more
Switching from Depo-Provera to lo loestrin fe I have missed two days the first week starting will my Depo-Provera back me up since I missed 2 pills?
No: Your Depo-Provera is not a reliable method since it has been a while since receiving it. You need to use a back up method (condoms) until you start your next pill pack. Try using the mobile apps to help you remember to take your pills. Also, I recommend taking your pills with something you do each day, like brush your teeth. ...Read more
It's a week before my period and I have brown discharge. It doesn't smell or itch or anything. I am on birth control and have been for over 3 years, I did miss a pill but I took two the next day. This is the first time this has happened to me, is this norm
Not unusual: Women taking the pill often have breakthrough spotting before their period starts. A brown discharge is simply old blood mixed with mucus. A woman's reproductive system is a very delicate and complex apparatus. Many things can affect its function. Emotional stress, change in sleep patterns, etc can alter your normal cycle. I wouldn't be alarmed, just keep track of things so that you can accurately describe changes to your doctor when you see them next ...Read more
Starting bcp: It's fine to double up once in awhile. It's just not good to make a habit of it. Sometimes it helps to keep your pills next to your toothbrush since you already have a good habit of brushing regularly, I would hope! That way you associate the two habits and it's no longer a burden to remember to take your pill. If you forget a lot, use a second method! ...Read more

Miss 3 pills in first week and had sex without pulling out Period ended 5 days ago what are the chances I could get pregnant?
Likely very low: If you have had your period than the chances of being pregnant are very low. You cannot be preg after having a period. But in the future you might need another form of birth control. I would recommend you talk to your doctor about and IUD or an implantable form of birth control. Both an IUD or an implantable work for over 3 or more years and you don't have to remember everyday to take a pill. ...Read more
I'm on sprintec. I missed the 1st two pills. And was 12 hours late taking one in the second week. I've been very active with my boyfriend. Chances?
Use Plan B: If you have missed one pill you simply take two the next day. If you missed two pills in a row you should take Plan B if intercourse was within 72 hours. Continue taking your pill and use condoms until your next period. Take a pregnancy test 10 days after unprotected sex. Consider an easier birth control method like an iud for the future. ...Read more

Missed a bc pill by a few hours and started bleeding two days later. Stopped after a week and now bleeding heavy again a day later. Should I worry?
Accutane, didn't miss dosage 1st month (30mg). Miss total six pills off/on throughout first 3 weeks of 2nd month (40 mg). Will this affect results?
No: Take with food for best result. Best results from taking each dose. The more doses you miss the more likely you will need to extend the total length of therapy. You do not give your weight. Probably you will soon be on 80mg a day. You will need to grease your lips. ...Read more

Was late on 2 BC pills. 1 in FIRST week 1 in SECOND week. What do I do? My pill regime gives me a period every 3 months. Missed pills in pack 1/3.
Use backup: You need to use a backup method of contraception since you have missed so many. The safest thing from there would be to wait a week after you finish the first 3 weeks, have a period, and start the 4th week the Sunday after that period starts if you want to continue these. However, if you have this much trouble remembering to take them, you might want to discuss other options with your doctor. ...Read more
Was late on 2 BC pills. 1 in FIRST week 1 in SECOND week. What do I do? My pill regimen gives me a period every 3 months. Missed pills in pack 1/3.
About a week ago I missed two bc pills, took them on the 2nd day when I remembered and this week I got my period now it's finished, am I protected?
Bleeding on OCP: If you missed a couple of days of the birth control pills, especially with the lower dose pills, it may cause the irregular bleeding you noted. The bleeding is due to the changes in birth control pills and the changes your body undergoes with the shifts in hormone levels. You may still be protected but I would recommend using another form of birth control with this cycle as well. ...Read more
My cycle is on & I still have a week of active pills. I been on birth control for three years & I missed two days but made those up. Is this normal?
Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more
Two weeks after initiating BCP using quick start method, I had unprotected sex (used withdrawal and no ejaculation). A few days prior I missed a pill and doubled up the next day. It's now 4 months since this incident in question but I'm worried that I'm p
Are you worried that: You're pregnant? Have you missed any menstrual periods? Have you taken a home pregnancy test? If you used the "quick start method" when initiating BCP, 's, you should have been protected against pregnancy at the time of the incident. While there appears to be little risk of taking BCP's early in pregnancy, continuing to take them if you think you could be pregnant is a not a good idea. ...Read more

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more
