Dr. Pfeiffer :

Dr. Pfeiffer :

normally we prescribe birth control pills for a year or sometimes 6 months in the case where a follow up pap test is required.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

this serves as a reminder that it's time to see your doctor for your annual pelvic exam and pap test.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so...sounds like you need to touch basis with your doctor for an exam and pap test....

Dr. Pfeiffer :

at that visit your birth control pills will be refilled if requested.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

Dr. Pfeiffer :

if everything was normal you should have been given a prescription for several packs of pills.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

there should be a refill on the prescription.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

so..if you don't have pills left, you need to call the pharmacy to refill them.

Dr. Pfeiffer :

Dr. Pfeiffer :

Dr. Pfeiffer :

Dr. Pfeiffer :

I'm having difficulty understanding if there's a break in the pills...but I would recommend using a condom or not having sex until you talk with your doctor on Monday and get more pills.

not if you had one last month and it was normal.
