Can missing birth control pills prolong a period? Especially in combination with a very immense amount of stress? (I know that missing pills increases the risk of pregnancy. I've been a little careless about it because my boyfriend won't be back in town for a long while. But I'll make sure to continue taking it consistently for at least a month before he returns!) Thank you!

Yes, missing pills can throw off your cycle and cause withdrawal bleeds that are early or late, or look different than you are used to.
