Ive been taking this birth control pill for a few months and havent been taking the sugar pills, but rather going straight to the next pack. Dumb as it probably sounds, I didnt want my period. Of course this leaves the problem of not receiving that monthly reminder. And I try taking them daily, but sometimes forget, I think its happened once or twice between my last pack and this one (Im on week two right now of the new pack). Im sexually active and am wondering if I might be pregnant. I of course havent had my period, but I have been bloated, had cravings, slight nausea, and slightly tender breasts. Im telling myself that Im simply over reacting to bad circumstances... But Id like the opinion of someone with more experience.
First of all, as much as periods suck, it's healthy to get them monthly to clear your uterus lining. Also missing all your periods can lead to it being harder to conceive when you come off the BC.
Now, to the actual question, if you forget just one pill in a row, make sure you take it as soon as you remember, if you missed it completely, you have the risk of becoming pregnant but without any symptoms, it seems unlikely however not impossible. If you really are worried and past when you are due or would've been due had you taken the placebo pills, take a pregnancy test, it will help you stress less :) good luck
I'm going to tell you something different. You can skip your period most months as long as you have 4 a year. This is because the pill decreases the uterine lining so their is not as much there to get rid of. If you're missing pills you may be pregnant, but probably not. I'd take the sugar pills this cycle and allow a period. If you don't get it do a pregnancy test. There are free apps to remind you to take your pill. It would be a good idea for you.
