Skipped pills to delay period?
Posted on: 12/06/2007
i have been on the pill for over a year and i recently missed two pills to delay my next period. this made me have a small period like spotting in the middle of my cycle. i continued to take the pills as normal after this. can you tell me if i am definitely protected as i have had unprotected sex and do not want to get pregnant. thank you
No, you are NOT protected!! This is exactly how people get pregnant who are taking the pill--even skipping for two days may allow you to ovulate and once you have ovulated you can get pregnant. Good Luck.
