What to do when you miss taking birth control pill

My girlfriend is on the pill

She had her period last week, it finished on sunday

We went out for my birthday on wednesday, and had sex twice on thursday morning and afternoon respectively.

Today, she has experienced vaginal bleeding, feeling nauseous, light headed, she has a lot of cramps

She missed her pill on wednesday, but has been on it for around 6 months

any idea what it might be??

I answered this on the other forum. This would not be an indication that she is pregnant but more like hormonal bleeding caused by missing that pill on Wednesday.  If she is still worried about pregnancy, she can take a test at home (that you pee on the stick) at 2.5 weeks after that date of missing her pill. good luck
