BC question
Fri, 09-14-2012 - 12:33pm


I have been on BC for 5 years and I did miss 1 or 2 pills last month. I had unprotected sex last friday (withdrawal well before ejaculation though). Instead of taking my placebo week pills I started a new pack unintentionally because it was on my bathroom counter as a reminder. I realized on Tuesday and stopped taking them so that I would get my period. I've started packs early before and it's always resulted in about 14 days of awful bleeding (Tri-sprintec 28s) so I decided to avoid the 2 week bleed I would stop taking this pack and just let everything reset and then start again.

It's Friday now, day 3 since not taking anything, and I have still not started bleeding. I usually start bleeding on day 4 or 5 of my placebo week. Is everything going to be pushed back a bit because I started the next pack? I'm a bit worried because this is not like be at all to be so careless because I'm usually such a strict condom+BC user.

Or should I just make up the pills I skipped and continue this pack as normal?
