I do not think so: BCP are not 100% protective for preventing Pregnancy. You can use it long with Spermicidal Jelly. BCP contain very low dose of Hormones so some times menstrual periods are very scanty and some times one misses the period. If you skip 3 months in a row; please see your PCP/GYN. Home pregnancy tests are very reliable ...Read more

You need to see: Your gyn for an exam , blood work and an ultrasound as u can start back having periods on that pill but it sholdl not be heavy and after you have been evaluated you may want to switch to loloestrin it has less estrogen 10 mcg and u will probably stop having periods again assuming nothing strange was found on us or blood work or exam, loloestrin is my #1 pill i prescribe. ...Read more

I'm : I'm sorry that i did not see your question until now. For future reference, if you accidentally take 2 pills in one day, you should just continue with your pill pack the next day taking one every day as you normally would. So if you took two pills sunday, you would take tuesday's pill on monday and then the wednesday's pill on tuesday and so on. You will end your pill pack one day early, but that's ok. You can just start the next pack as you normally would when you run out of placebo pills from this pack. ...Read more

Birth control pills: It may take a few months for your cycles to become regular on BCPs. If you have taken it every day faithfully then it is unlikely you are pregnant. Home pregnancy testing can always be done to make sure. If you don't have periods after 3-4 months on this pill check with your doctor. ...Read more
