I start my BC on tuesdays, but the pharmacist didn't refill them! so i have to start tomorrow... how long will it take until my BC gets back to full strength? i'm on Yasmin, the pill, if that makes any difference.

An extra day should not make too much of a difference, but to be safest I'd suggest you use a back-up method this month just to cover your bases. If you want a second opinion, as well, call the pharmacist or the doctor who prescribed the pills to you and ask what they think [Smile]

Also, to avoid this in the future, either call ahead a couple weeks early, or call ahead and see if your pharmacist can have more than one pack available. I know with my prescription I can three packs at a time and refill them every 60 days so I have packs ahead of time.
