Missed periods on OCPs - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
User : hi
How can i help you
User : I skipped my period at the end of last month (Sept.) because I was going on a vacation. Instead of taking the placebo pills I started right into a new pack. I have never done this and have been on birth control for 8 years. I sometimes miss my pills and do not use condoms with my bf and he pulls out(which I know is not a safe method). I luckily have not gotten pregnant especially with me missing pills sometimes. My question is I am not supposed to start my period for another week or so but I have horrible cramps like I would if I was on my period and my breast are VERY sore which they generally are not when I'm on my period. I also noticed spotting this morning. Could these be possible side effects from skipping a period or could I possibly be pregnant?
Doctor : Ok
give me some time to proceed
User : okay
I will help you in this ?
User : okay, thank you
Can i ask few questions ?

when was your last sexual contact with your boy friend
User : 2 nights ago

User : my concern is during the time I skipped my period I missed pills
User : it was not protected
User : he pulls out
Doctor : are you still taking the birth controlling pills ?
User : I seem to always miss pills, atleast weekly and freak out and take a test every month which is dumb I know
User : and it's always negative
User : yes I am still taking pills
User : 2 weeks ago I missed 3 pills in one week
the symptoms that you are experiencing is to due irregular schedule of the pills
it should be taken on a proper basis
Doctor : do you have low back ache ?
User : okay so the sore breasts and cramping is due to how I tak my pills
