Missed 2 Pills In The First Week Never Cought Up Bled 2 Days
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

I missed first two birth control pills in pack, had sex seven days after I took the 2 pills that I missed and started pack. Should I use plan b?
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

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
This is my 6th month on the pill minastrin 24 fe. I have been taking my pill correctly with zero problems except last month I missed the first 5 days of the pill but I bled at the end of that pack. I am now almost 2 weeks into my new pack and for the last
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
Recently missed a period by 25 days and ended up having a period two weeks ago and while bathing the first day of that period I had a flesh like tissu?
Two possibilities,: Altho, without examining the discharge, these are educated guesses If you use tampons, a small piece can remain in the vagina and, when it comes out, it could like "fleshy". If you're sexually active, the other possibility, since your period was late, is a very early miscarriage. At that stage, the embryo & placenta are very tiny and could appear like a bit of flesh.

I am on beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate). I missed two days in the third week. Can I not take two pills today and two tomorrow to get back on track? The packet is confusing.
You are correct: To make up for two missed pills (in any week), you take two pills for two nights. I would probably use a back up method this week, until you've had your period and started a new pack. ...Read more
Hi, I've been on birth control for about three months now and a couple of weeks ago I missed two days in a row. I took the two the next morning to make up for it, but I still got my period (in the middle of the package of pills). It only lasted a few days
Breakthrough bleed: Breakthrough bleeding (bleeding at the wrong time) is very common on birth control. It happens in about 1/3 of users. Its no big deal and usually self corrects over time. If you are not satisfied or it continues to happen then consider using a different birth control method. It is a common side effect and does not mean something is wrong or that the pill is not working. ...Read more
Hi, I am on the pill and had my period a week ago. I missed two days of the pill and took it again normally and I have now got a brown discharge?
Missed two birth control pills; took them together; period came a week early. Now what? I was two weeks into my birth control pack and I forgot to take a pill two days in a row. On the third day when I realized my mistake, I took two pills. The next day (
This: This question is 5 days old so you have likely made a decision as to whether to start a new pack or continue the old one. However, for the future, you did the right thing. If you miss a pill you should restart as soon as you realize it. With low dose pills, missing one or two days can trigger bleeding in midcycle as a result of the hormone withdrawal. If more than 2 days go by without pills you should utilize a back up method such as condoms and/or the "morning after" pill to increase your protection against unwanted pregnancy. ...Read more
I had a light period two weeks ago exactly. Now I'm very lightly bleeding again. I notice it when I wipe that how light. I've been on the pill for four years but tend to miss days and I've been sexually active. Any idea what's going on?
I can say one thing: You either need to be prepared to become pregnant or you need much better sexual safety behavior. That said, it can be one of the things you bring up at an OBGYN exam to discover the cause of your unusual cycle. Please take yourself more seriously. It is a matter of health and adult responsibility. Best! ...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

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
