I am currently travelling and since my last pill pack I skipped my period so I wouldn't have to worry about having a period while backpacking. I am currently on week 3 of my 2nd pack and yesterday I forgot to take the pill and took it 12hrs later. Now I have 4 pills left and ned advice on whether i should skip my period again or just have my period next week. Myself and my boyfriend have been using extra protection the whole time also. Please help!

Hi Pinkie55,

Welcome to EmpowHER. It's important to call your doctor, so he can suggest what would be best and in the mean time use another form of protection. Such as condoms to avoid pregnancy.
