... next month??
As long as you have been taking a pill every day, on a regular basis, you should be good to go without back up next month. It is best and safest to wait an entire cycle or one complete pack and have that first period then once you start your new pack you are well and good protected as you will ever be on the Pill. The Pill is 95-99% effective when taken properly so every day at around the same time of day. Remember that antibiotics can reduce effectiveness of the Pill so if you are put on antibiotic therapy, you need to use a back up method like condoms and spermicide for the entire time you are on the antibiotics and for 7-14 days after you finish them. You can always consult your pharmacist about any drug interactions with your birth control pills when you pick up a new medication.
