I have a very convoluted question. To give some background, about three months ago my obgyn diagnosed me with PCOS. I was then started on Nortrel. I have been taking it for two months now. This month, I missed one of my active pills on the first week. The exact day was March 22nd. I could not find the pill and I honestly didn't give it a second thought. I continued on taking the pack as usual. My boyfriend and I had protected sex (we used a condom for the entire time) on April 2nd. I started my placebo pills yesterday and I am concerned about Pregnancy considering that I missed an active pill. Even though we are using both birth control pills and condoms, I still worry. I have had a friend say that missing one pill will not cause a huge difference, but from my research online I have found otherwise. What day should I start my period or is it normal to skip a period all together? Last month my period was very light and only lasted three days. Should pregnancy be a huge concern for me in my given situation and if so, when should I take a pregnancy test?
