I am on birth control and today was last day of my pack, but I never got my period. I think this is because I missed two pills in a row earlier in the week. Do I start my new pack or wait to get my period?

Thanks so much!

Did you have sexual contact that would have caused a pregnancy risk during this cycle? 2 missed pills could have compromised your protection. If so, you'll probably want to take a pregnancy test.

Otherwise, unless your pill instructions suggest you wait for your bleed, you'll want to start your new pack on schedule. Starting a pack late can reduce your protection for the next cycle.

Nope there was no sexual contact during the previous month to cause a pregnancy risk. So I should read the information with my pill to see what it says?
