i take a test every time i skip the inactive pills just to be safe! i usually wait until a couple days after when my “period” usually shows up, or 12-14 days after if i missed a pill or took one a little late. i’m a little paranoid lol. most BCP’s say that it’s okay to miss one pill, some even two so you’re probably okay… i’d be really careful to make sure you don’t take two in one day or something (seems like the only way you’d get ahead like that?), but i have done that before (stupid teenage me thought that taking 2 pills instead of one would stop breakthrough bleeding… didn’t work at all lol) and didn’t have any serious consequences.

If you are due for your period today and early test would almost certainly be accurate. They are pricey, but a First Response Early Result would let you know. (pink box)

nightcheese:  you can take it today if your period was due today! i usually wait just so i don’t get anxious again and end up taking two lol. but the early response tests are supposed to be super accurate even a few days before your missed period.  let us know how it goes!

nightcheese:  you can take a test to put yourself at ease, but I have royally screwed up my pills and thankfully nothing happened. 

I have gone 3 days without taking it and being sexually active and nothing happened. I have skipped a few days in the month, and nothing ever happened.
