thanks lemming - yep i'd thought of that, but i've still got 4 more pills left, and should get my 'period' next week. i just rang my doctor to make an appointment to chat about it and some other stuff- but it's not til next wednesday, annoyingly. i'll ask them about it and maybe changing pills then.. meanwhile, another thing. my doctor said that with my pill i should always take it at around the same time [i do] but it can be up to 12 hours after the normal time. the latest i've done it is about an hour-2 hours. but my pill leaflet just got me really confused. it says, "what do i do if i forget a pill?" then "more than 12 hours late?" - no. "less that 12 hours late? don't worry, take the last pill you missed now and the rest of the pack as usual". Does taking a pill an hour-two hours late count as a missed pill?! because in that case, with less than 7 pills left in my pack i should apparently start my next back the next day, without having a seven day break. or does this only apply to having actually -missed- a pill by more than 12 hours?! Argh! why do they have to make leaflets so complicated?!
