What Happens If I Forget To Take The Birth Control Pill
Depends on week : The number of pills missed, the strength of the pill and the week in question all impact the management. If you miss 1 - 2 pills of a 30 mcg ee formulation or 1 (active) pill of a 10-20 mcg ee pill, take 1 pill (active) as soon as you remember, then continue taking the pill pack. In cases when the missed pills are from the first week, a back-up method or emergency contraception may be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Nothing!: Literally! Skipping these pills will just cause you not to have a period. If you don't want a period, feel free to do this. There is no medical reason why you need to have a period, skipping them by taking birth control pills continuously (skipping the sugar pills at the end) is totally safe, does not increase your risk of cancers and has no effect on later fertility! Awesome huh? ...Read more

Keep going: If you take an incorrect pill, and it's only 1, it's unlikely to increase your risks of pregnancy--if it's a combination pill. If you're worried, use a back up method for a week. If you miss pills often, think about using an easier birth control, such as a long-acting reversible contraceptive (iud or implant). ...Read more
Not a good idea: If you missed two birth control pills in a row, you are no longer protected from unintended pregnancy. You might consider using a back up method (such as condoms) until after your next menstrual period.

What can happen if I take active birth control pills during the week im suppose to be taking the inactive ones?
U will not: Get your period which is fine, but u need to be doing this with a monophasic pill, I do this with alot of my pts, who do not want their period, they stay on active pills , they never take the placebo and when they stop their periods will return to the way they would be at that age in their life meaning the pill does not have long term side efects on your period, feel sorry for your red sox. ...Read more
What happens if you miss some of your birth control pills? I missed three pills , should I still take them?
No: By the time a woman misses 3 bcp in a row, the chance she will ovulate and start a period is very high. I recommend a woman stop the current pack, take nothing for 4 more days and then start a new pack at the beginning. Back up birth control will need to be used until 2 weeks into the next pack, such as condoms. In order for bcp to work you need to take them same time every day. ...Read more
