... couldn't find it. I continued to take the rest if the pills and now, I'm late. Last summer I stopped takig the pills and didn't haves period for 4 months. So I'm hoping that's the reason for not getting my period. But I'm a little terrified. Is it because I didn't take that one pull or because I just happened to get pregnant from missing one?
Stop panicking. You should be fine, although missing a pill can reduce the effectiveness slightly. The pills in the second week are "safer" to miss than other pills so as long as you took all the others as instructed you should be fine.
A small percentage of women stop menstruating on birth control pills - you could be one of these.
If you miss your period take a pregnancy test.
Here is a link which explains what you should do next time you miss a pill.
