Hi all. I am normally so responsible with my birth control which is why I am having the ultimate anxiety attack right now.
So, I was on the 28 day pill pack of Try-Jordyna for years, but I found taking the placebo week to be annoying. My doctor recommended I just skip taking them, but then, decided to switch me over to the 21 day pill pack. Last month, I don't know why I did this, but I mistook in my brain my 21 day pack for a 28 day pack the way I used to take them, and skipped the last row of pills. Meaning, I did not skip placebo pills, but I skipped my third and final week of active pills. I just realized a few minutes ago that I did this.
I had unprotected sex during this time, though we used the pull out method, and got my period on the 16th of November. I am now almost finished week 2 of this new pack, but I guess my question is, what are my next steps? I will surely take this pack properly and fully, but is there anything more that I can do? How bad is it for my body that I missed a whole week?
I had unprotected sex from when I started this new pack, but again, pull out method. If you miss a week, I read somewhere that you have to wait an entire cycle for it to be regulated again, so I recognize that there is a pregnancy risk this month since I should have used barriers if I missed pills. I wish I had realized sooner, but, should I take a pregnancy test, or just wait for my period this month until then?
Also, a bleed on birth control means that you're covered, right? If I were pregnant, my period would still be late, correct? Thank you so much in advance, I have never felt more foolish and irresponsible.
