I haven't been the best at taking my pills, and i have not received any withdrawal bleeds. The last time i had sex was a little over a month ago and we used a condom. I took a pregnancy test just to make sure last week, and it came out negative (though i didnt use first morning urine because it was so long after the risk). I had bought it around the end of May though, and the expiration date says "01 08". That means Januray of 2008 and not August 1st right? ( It's been stored well and everything) Just wanted to make sure the test result was pretty reliable, so thank you !

Yep. January 2008.

Odds are it's pretty reliable.

As far as your birth control is concerned...Have you considered switching methods? Taking the pills erratcially can, as you have seen, mess with your cycle.
