Thank you kindly for the msg.. I had the pills stored in my washroom cabinet but i haven't been on the pill for 4 years.... cuz i haven't had a boyfriend for the last year or so, and before that i was using condoms.. but know im in a serious relationship we choose to not use condoms and use the pill.. and i noticed they expired a year ago but i assumed there ok.. and just took.. it should be ok.. i will get ride of the rest of them and get new ones.. thank you kindly. -Sara

Hi Sarah,
I was just wondering, did your bc end up working ok? I just realized I have been taking 8 month old (expired) pills and I am seriously concerned. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative however, I know that it may be too early to tell. What was your experience?
Thank you!

Hi Chrissy,

One woman's expired birth control pills will not necessarily provide the information that you need for your expired birth control pills. When are you expecting your period?
