i am 18 & went abroad to germany in april. forgot about the time difference & accidentally skipped 2 pills (loestrin 24 fe). my period came the next day. lasted about 7 days (usually 4 on medicine). this month, my period is 5 days late. did have sex with my boyfriend about a week ago. ive taken my pill everyday up after my slip up in germany. ive checked my cervix multiple times since my period skipped. it's usually low, puckered & slightly open. i am having creamy, white discharge. no pain other than normal cramps. really nervous about pregnancy.
Missing a few pills can mess with your cycle and cause break through bleeding or late periods. However, there is a slight possibility of pregnancy when pills are missed, so if you don't start your period in a few days I would test for pregnancy. Best of luck.
