Attempt at changing cycle and missed pills?

Hi! I am new on this board I mainly hang out on relationship boards...

Im not sure if I can get some info or feedback on my question but I'll try anyway. If you have knowledge or any experiences, please share! thanks!

I have been on birth control pills(Marvelon 28 pills) for the past 5 months. There are times I have missed one or two pills here and there but I have never had a problem with my period. I usually have my period 2-3 days after finishing active pills.

Last month, Trying to alternate a date of starting my period, I deliverately missed 4 active pills so I will get my period sooner than usual. I succesfully had my period, then

First, Welcome to our board! :)

I can't say if there's reason for you to be concerned about pregnancy or if your body is just thrown off by the change in hormones. You may have just "confused" your system but the possibility may be there for a pregnancy. Either way, if your period is "due" you should be able to detect a pregnancy with a HPT (Home Pregnancy Test). If it comes back negative and you still don't get your period, perhaps contact your doctor.

Best of luck! Keep us posted!
