    Default Anyone using the pill

    Hi everyone. I have just realised i have posted this in the wrong section!!!!

    I just wanted to ask a question to anyone who takes the pill. I want to know if you miss the pill, apart from the obvious risk of pregnancy, do you suffer any side effects and what are they??

    Hey im not on the pill anymore *obviously* but i dont think there are any side effects of missing the pill?? Besides of course, risking getting pregnant.

    I do remember when i started taking it like 2 years ago, the first few months i would always forget a tablet at least once a month. And nothing ever happened from that i'd just remember to take 2 at the same time the next day!

    Once i didnt take it for 3 days because i forgot to take my pill packet when i went camping for a few days and i got a very very slight period that only lasted like 2-3 days.

    You shouldnt have any side effects if you have only missed one. If you miss more on consecutive days, you will most likely get a period. So I suggest that you continue with the period (providing you hadnt just had one), and continue to take the pill every day after that.
    I suggest that you cut out 1 or 2 pills from the packet and put them in your handbag, that way if you ever forget to take it, you have a spare with you.

    Other than an increased risk of pregnancy, you shouldnt have any side effects.

    Cheers, Rachel
