So I missed my first pill of bc of New pack. 2nd day I got the flu and took it at midnight had been puking don't know if I threw it up. Ive been on the pill for years but worried about pregnancy. How likely is it?
I can see people are viewing my question but not answering idk if its because you guys have no answer.. but someone please give some advice. I just ended my period so its gonna be a long wait to see if I miss it.
Not very likely at all that you could get pregnant if you just ended your period. Most women ovulate about two weeks after their period, although there are variations on that theme. If you just miss one, I don't think you have to use backup, but if you miss two, they say to use a backup protection (such as a condom) for one week after that (while you continue to take your pills as normal). GL!
Ok, most pill packs tell you that if you miss a dose that you should take it as soon as you remember regardless of how close your next dose is. Take your next dose on time.You should consider the pill missed if you vomited within 2 hours of taking it. If you miss 3 or more pills discontinue the pack and start a new one. Be sure to use a back up method of birth control for the first 7 days.
If you ever have questions about your birth control you should know that you can contact your Dr and/or your pharmacy and they will answer any questions you may have.
Thanks everyone for the advice. I know ita horrible but I missed another pill last week! I have been so tired and fell asleep before taking it. i had a weird cramp on my lower left side too. Period is due sept 7th so its all waiting now. Isk if i should still take the bc pack.
