Hi em,

Thank you for your question. I will assume from your question that you are sexually active. The Pill is not 100% accurate and there is always the chance of becoming pregnant. Is your main concern pregnancy or missing your period?

Did you have any spotting? Did you have anything that constituted a period? How long have you been taking the Pill? It is pretty uncommon to miss a period while on the Pill although in some individuals it may happen. Have you taken a pregnancy test to be sure?

Please update us with some more information so we may be able to assist you better.
