Is this normal?

I took my pill the first two weeks but I forgot to take it the third week, will that make my period not come on the fourth week? I still had cramps all week and my normal cravings but i also have sex but every time is protected sex. Could I be pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Missing seven consecutive days of active hormonal birth control pills will cause your period to start sooner. If you had sexual intercourse during this week of missed pills and your partner did not use a condom, then there is a risk for pregnancy.

If your period is late, take a home pregnancy test before starting a new pack of birth control pills.

I did have sex the week I didn't take it. And every time was protected. If I were to be pregnant how old do you have to be to get an abortion? And does your parent have to be there? Can a friends parent take you?
