... my period but took a preg test and it cam back neg. During the end of the first week I forgot sun pill. I took one monday and didn't notice till tuesday that I had missed one. So I took two (looking back I'm not sure if this was the right thing to do). Now I have my period and was hoping if someone could tell me if this is normal or if I should be worried. Thanks
This is normal and you did do what you are supposed to do. Most women dont realize they have missed a pill until it is time to take one so you end up taking two at a time and that is correct for one missed pill-take it as soon as you remember even if it means taking two the same day or two at the same time. But NOW you must use condoms as back up for the next 7 days to keep you protected against pregnancy. On occasion you may miss a period, you may get breakthrough spotting. With todays low dose pills, many women will find they spot if they miss a pill or if they take antibiotics, which can reduce the effectiveness of the pill. No, you did everything correctly for the circumstance, you just have to either abstain for 7 dyas or be sure, if you have sex in the next seven days, your partner is using a condom!! Also, just keep taking your pills as they come in the pack regardless of whether you are bleeding or not. It will eventually stop and regulate out again in time.
