Hello ma'am.

If you miss more than 2 tablets it is always advised to discontinue the pill and use other forms of contraception like condoms and report to your doctor. I hope you did thay, if you habe not then please get a pregnancy test conducted.

Also, once pregnancy is ruled out (if it is), please visit your doctor for a hormone level check.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.

Thanks for the query.
As you missed 6 pills in one package, the complete protection from pregnancy can not be expected.
So the symptoms you are having could be due to:
- Side effects of the pills.
-Symptoms of early pregnancy.
- Symptoms of pelvic infection or urinary tract infection.
- Possibility of gastritis.
So, you once consult gynecologist and get examined.
With her advice go for blood test for pregnancy and urine microscopy.
By examination and these investigations, the possible cause for your problem can be identified and treated.
If no abnormality detected simple symptomatic treatment with antacids and antispasmodics is sufficient.
If you miss any active pill in the pack, you have to use some additional contraceptive method in that month.
For more details you can ask me directly through the premium forum.
Take care.
