I've been on ortho-cyclen for a little over a year. My boyfriend and I are long distance so we were not sexually active at this time. I missed the first 3 pills of my birth control in the first week. I read the instructions and it says to continue taking pills until sunday (I'm a sunday starter), then throw out the pack and start a new one that same Sunday. I was just wondering why this is? Will I be more likely to get pregnant if we have sex in a few weeks? Are there health side effects if I just continue taking the pack as usual? Thanks for your time and help.
