So I’ve been on the pill for almost 5 years now and have never had problems remembering to take it…
I’d been telling my husband for the past few days that I’ve been feeling nauseaus a lot at night this week and then yesterday I started spotting and it got much heavier today. I checked my pill pack and I missed one! Not sure when it was I think it was def a few days ago though.
I’m a little nervous because even though we are married we do not feel ready to have a baby just yet. We had intercourse on Sunday and I am currently on day 13 of my BC pack. I took the pill that I missed along with today’s dose today. Is there a good chance I could get pregnant? I spoke with the nurse at my gyno’s office and all she really said was take a test if I miss my period.
Any help would be appreciated!

@BlondeBeachBride2011: You did the right thing by taking it with today’s dose. I’m thinking that due to the bleeding I would say you are not pregnant, as it sounds like your uterine lining was shedding quite a bit.
I remember when I missed a pill once and took it late (24 hours late) I got all freaked out and went to the doctor. She told me that because of the way that the pill also changes the lining of the uterus so that it is not implantation-friendly that even on the chance that you ovulate it is so unlikely that it would implant successfully.

At least on the pills I’m taking (tricyclin lo) it says take a missed pill as soon as you realize you’ve forgotten, and by seven days later you’re protected from pregnancy at normal levels – so read the instructions that come with your pills closely.
