Patient : I am on the birth control pill Portia. This past week I noticed I accidentally took Monday's pill on Sunday and Tuesday's pill on Monday. I then proceeded to take Sunday's pill on Wednesday to try to get back on track. I have been on birth control for almost 10 years but I am a day late and freaking out. I was not sexually active this week. Do I need to worry? Did getting those days mixed up mess up my cyle?
If both the pills that you exchanged were active pills or sugar pill vice verse, you should not be too concerned. However, if an active pill was replace by a sugar pill, there is a chance that you might be pregnant. I would advise that you do a home pregnancy test if you do not have your periods within a week. I wish you well, take care.
