I'm seriously so paranoid. I stress over everything. This month, I missed the first pill in my pack. (Wal Mart didn't have my prescription ready on time.) Now, have been thinking about it non stop the past week or so. I have never missed a pill before. I'm hoping that didn't effect the effectiveness of it. I took every other pill exactly when I was supposed to. It has been a couple weeks since then. My mind keeps wandering though. I'm safe, right? I need to stop overthinking it and worrying. What do you think?

I agree. The first one shouldn't make a difference. (if you get pregnant from missing one pill I'll be so jealous! I've been off the pill for 6 months & nothing has happened!)

Yeah totally fine to miss the first pill. When I used the pill and wanted to change my cycle days, I would just start backing up my start date.
