... and she had taken her pills but missed here and there and taken a few late she had just finished the red pills now and has not gotten her period yet should we be very concerned its the first time she still has three more pills she has 3 more days for her cycle to be 28
This medication can change a woman's body. She needs to set a certain time each day to take it. Make it part of her routine like when she gets up in the morning to get ready for the day. Or when she's ready to go to bed. Its important to take the medicine at the same time daily. If she skips doses than its not going to be effective. She should stop taking it now and start back when her cycle ends this time... Just start fresh to be on the safe side... If she started early then this means the pills are not working due to her missing doses and not taking them at the same time daily...
You're kind of jumping the gun, she can get her period any time during the time she's on the inactive pills. If she misses a pill she should take it the as soon as she realizes, even if it means taking 2 in one day. The more pills missed in a row the higher the risk of pregnancy, but since its almost none if the pills are taken perfectly that's not too high a risk. She really needs to get more regular with her pills. She should pick a time good for her, set an alarm on her phone, and be sure to take it then. You could help her remember too. When I was on them, before the computer age, I had a sign on my frig door, did you take your pill today? lol
She is probably fine. A woman can start even on the last day of her inert tablets. She will likely start yet. She doesnt need to stop taking them! She does need to be more regular in her times to get the full effectiveness. If 6 pm is her time she needs to be taking them between 5 and 7 pm every day. Does she have a cell phone? Most of us do. Have her set an alarm on her phone and keep her pills in her purse so she always has them with her.
