Patient : Dear Doctor -
I switched the brand of birth control I was taking and I switched the time I took it. I wanted to change the day I started a new pack, and I found this to be a good time. I went from a Monday starter to a Sunday starter. So I skipped one placebo pill. Could all this be the reason I missed my period? (I also started college, was under a lot of stress and I got a cold the week I should have gotten my period. I am sexually active but we also use a condom as backup. Nothing leaked or busted. )
