Question: 1 month off only!!

 chatis - Tue Oct 11, 2005 12:40 am

I accidentally threw away my bc pills supply and it took me a month to get a new doctor's appoint. & a new prescription. I had a normal period after that month that I was off the pill and I immediately started my new set of pills the first day of my period. Now I'm 2 wks late.... Is it normal to miss a period after being off the pill for only 1 month?? I already took 2 pregnancy tests that they were both negative..

Eventhough I didn't have my period I started taking my new set of pills after the 7 usual days. Is this ok??

User avatar It is normal after missing a month of birth control pills for your periods to be sliightly off. As long as you have confirmed you are not pregnant.
It is ok that you started the next pack of periods, but you should use a back up method( condoms) this month.
