Missing birth control pills

Hello, I missed a birthday control pill the first week I started but doubled up the following day! In the second week I had sex but the condom ripped without us realising, I missed the day I had sex (Thursday) and Fridays pill and took all three at the normal time Saturday morning! I then felt very sick Saturday night which I put down to eating something dodgy and now on my pill free week I still haven't got my 'period' I start my new back on Thursday? Could I be pregnant? Someone please help me

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

First of all.  Whenever you miss a pill DO NOT double or triple up.  For example on Saturday you should have only taken the Thursday pill. Then on Sunday take the Friday pill.  

The reason why your period has not come yet is because your hormones are imbalanced and confused from doubling up on the pills.  Doing so also made you feel sick.

It is impossible to know at this point how effect or ineffective the pill was.  You should start the next pack at the regular time and remember not to double up on missed pills but simply start up where you left off.

Give time for your period to normalize.  If you miss you period next month you should take a pregnancy test.
