The last day I took my pill was January 14th. I miss three pills before intercourse. and then I stop taking the rest because it was too late. The only period I had on on January 20th due to the stop of my brith control

The chances of pregnancy may be there if you miss the bc pills while being on it.The time of ovulation may also change when you are on bc pills due to the hormonal influence.


You should have the pregnancy test done like blood hcg test to rule out the pregnancy.


The bc pills pills itself may cause hormonal imbalance and cause absent periods and irregular bleeding and this should also be checked for.


The other causes of absent or delayed periods are stress, anxiety, thyroid abnormality etc and should be ruled out.


Please feel free to ask me any doubt.


Thank you!
