Birth Control Pill Got Lost

In my second week of active pills on the last day (Saturday) I noticed my pill had popped out of the package and had gotten lost. I didn't take a pill at all this day, but continued my pack of pills as regular the following day. I did have spotting for a few days in my third week and used protection when having sex.

Will my period be messed up this month and next? It's been 11 days since my missed pill and I've been continuing the pack as normal, taking the pill at the same time everyday.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Your period may be a day or two early/late but that should be the only side effect if there is one at all.
