I take LoEstrin24, was changed to it from Nuva Ring 4 months ago. This past month AF came again in a week into my pills for on 10/26.
I then forgot to take two pills right around when I O'd; DH and I DTD one of those nights. I now am having some pg symptoms.
I am supposed to start new pack of pills tomorrow but AF is technically not due till next Tues.
Should I start the pills on time or wait to see if AF shows next week then start them?

Thank you for the amazing siggy *Kiliki*

The Pill should work to suppress your fertile cervical mucus and the synthetic progesterone affects basal temperatures. Since neither of those fertility signs is reliable when taking the Pill, how do you know you were near ovulation?

Pregnancy symptoms are a common side effect of the Pill, they can begin anytime. Sometimes they are especially prevalent when you miss a few, because of the hormonal confusion your body experiences with the starting/stopping.

Pregnancy is always possible though too, even without missing pills. I'd hold off on starting a new pack until you can confirm you're not PG. I hope you get your answer soon, or have received it by now.
