you could be pregnant. you can get pregnant even when your on the pill but its not that common. missing 8 pills outta what 30 is a lot. i do kno that when you miss like three pills three days straight your supposed to drop the pills and wait until your period to resume a new pack.

are you having unprotected sex?

Your birth control will definatly not be effective for this month and yes it is possible for you to be pregnat, you can get pregnant by missing jusst 1 pill. You are going to have to wait a few weeks and then take a pregnancy test, you cycle will be quite messed up. when you took a pill afer missing the 8, was it starting a new pack or continuing with your old one. even your next pack i would think the Dr would say to use another form of contraception as well

your not supposed to do that. your pills come with instructions on how to take them. after missing like three your supposed to stop taking them, wait for your period, and then start with a new pack.

i wouldn;'t take anymore, then a a few weeks take a pregnancy test unless you get your period. On the first day of your period start a new pack.
