I've been taking ortho cyclen regularly and as directed for a few months now. The pack contains 21 blue active pills and 7 inactive green pills. Since i began taking ortho cyclen i've only used the inactive pills 2 days per month, i would let myself have a period for just those 2 days and then i'd get right back on the active pills, even though spotting occured. This month, after I finished my entire pack, I was unable to pick up another pack from the doctor until 5 days had passed, and on the 5th day I had unprotected sex. I'm worried that I might become pregnant because I waited so long to get another pack... I know it seems silly but the reason I started taking this form of BC in the first place is because I had a miscarriage and it was a horrible experience. I just need some reassurance or advice??

I missed four white pills on my Ortho Tri-Cyclen due to running out. How should I start taking them?
