Question
Hello, i missed my pill for two days because i went on a trip and forgot them. I started bleeding a week and a half early. when i got back i took two pills for two days to catch up. I stopped bleeding after a few days, but not im supposed to have my period in three days. Should i go off my pills and have my period or start a new pack?
THanks!

Answer
Dear Nolan, Please consult your doctor about this situation. I don't feel comfortable giving you advice on this situation. I don't usually recommend using hormonal birth control methods. The pills do contain hormones and in my opinion, can cause side effects or problems health-wise. Please email me at CHERYL51@aol.com and update me on your situation.

Sincerely,
Diane Cheryl
