Is there a pill you can take if you missed your period?

Suppose there were a pill you could take if you missed your period, but you didn’t want to know whether you were pregnant. The pill would terminate a pregnancy and cause bleeding; in the case of no pregnancy, it’d cause period-like bleeding. The pills would be safe, but have side effects similar to regular menstruation.

What happens if you miss your period on birth control?

How often do you get your period on birth control?

This varies for each woman, but birth control tends to regularize your cycle. That means that after a few months on the pill, you’ll find that your “period” usually starts on the same day of that week each month. So, you’ll probably be getting your period every 28 days.

Is it safe to pull out of birth control?

You were only on it for 5 days again, which isn’t enough time to protect you. Pulling out is NOT a form of birth control. He deposits sperm long before he ejaculates. Just keep on taking the pill, but use a condom for this cycle. When its time to start the next pack, you should be safe. You cannot forget your pill like that and expect it to work.
