I've been taking Ortho Tricyclen Lo for a while now, about a year and a half. A couple weeks ago I forgot to take the first light blue pill (day 7 i think). I remembered it the morning after, so I took it right then. So then about 10 hours later I took the next light blue pill as regularly scheduled, and continued with the pack normally. Well I was supposed to get my period on Wednesday, two days ago, it is now Friday (and I am on my 6th dark green pill- only have one more left until I start a new pack). I did have protected (condom) sex once during this 28 day pack. I haven't gotten my period yet and I'm wondering what to do or what could be wrong? I am feeling a little crampy, etc. just no bleeding yet, so as you can probably tell, I'm very worried. Please let me know! Thanks!
You are probably worrying for nothing. You took the pill as soon as you remembered and the rest of them were on time, and you used a condom, so there is little to no chance you're pregnant. The pill causes the lining of your uterus to be less then if you weren't taking them, so sometimes you can skip a period or it will be very light.

I had the Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo pill a few hours late one day, on time the next day, a few hours late?
