So I've been on vacation for a week and totally forgot that I'm on my last pack of birth control, and am due to start my next this sunday. Thing is, my BC place isn't open until friday of this next week.
I've been calling like crazy to ask this but for the life of me, I can't reach the clinic or lady. And Sunday is creeping ominously closer, so I need a quick answer...
How does one stop birth control? I've been abstaining for about 5 months with my longterm bf and figured I won't need it anymore. I figure now is as good of a time as any to do it.
Is it safe to just.... stop "cold turkey"? Like, finish a pack and just stop? Or do I need some sort of weaker pill to ween off of it....?
