I've been taking my birth control on time and everyday but this month with my boyfriend and myself moving its been hectic. I've skipped 2 pills. One in week one the other in week two buy ibe used a backup method.I had to travel out of state in a rush due to famiku issues and completely forgot my bc. When I got home I had already missed half the week so I thought I would just start over but I'm not sure about when.

Hi Anonymous, Every birth control pill is different. You should contact your pharmacist and let them know your situation or you can call your doctor's office. It is important to know the kind of birth control you are using as to whether you should start the new pack immediately or wait for your next cycle. You should always follow the directions of your treating physician. I hope this helps. MissieFebruary 23, 2013 - 7:37am
