Birth control question

Unread post by ah7 »

Hi! I have a question regarding birth control that i’d really appreciate and answer to! a i’ll give you a little background info to kind of understand the situation- I started the combined pill in February of last year on a Friday, which was the first day of my period. The next month I wrote in my notes app “take pill again on Thursday” ( I presume for March and April I started the pack on a Thursday as opposed to Friday like I initially started) I must have got mixed up and in May and June I began the new packs on a Wednesday (again a day previous). However, since July I have began every new pack on a Thursday and I consistently take it at the same time everyday. In september I forgot to start my next pack on time, so I took 2 on the Friday (a day later than i was supposed to start it). However, since then I have never missed a pill or taken one late. I just want to make sure that I’m not at risk of ovulating anymore because I have been correctly taking it for months now, despite a few slips up at the start. Any answer would be great!

Thank you for reading!

Hi ah7,

It looks like we already covered the gist of this question with you in a previous thread, so I'm going to close this one and we can continue the conversation over there: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=10719&p=55140#p55140.
