Hey there,

need some advice, I have been on the pill for three years and I have just run out of my 6 monthly dosage. I tried to ring the doctors this morning but due to stupid UK government policies I cant get an appointment. If I cant get to the doctors in time (which is likely) will it really mess up my contraceptive control? I am aware that I'll be unprotected until I can get the next dose from the doctor but will it be easy to pick it back up again?

Aghh damn the NHS!

It shouldn't screw up your cycles too bad, i wouldn't think. You'll probably be advised (ask your doctor for sure) to wait until your next period to start the next pack of pills ... And then you'll have to wait another month for the pill to reach full efficacy.

Using condoms until you get this all sorted out would be a great idea
