This is probably a hernia since you can push it back. Your medical provider will need to examine it to make sure. So long as it does push back readily, there is no danger, so any time in the next couple of weeks will be fine to make an appointment. There are several things that can aggravate it, including straining when one is constipated.
It isn't uncommon to miss a period on birth control pills, but with that particular one, it isn't common to miss three periods in a row. You should talk to your ob/gyn about this. If your aim is to miss periods there are other brands (like Seasonale).
Please let me know if you have additional questions.
Yes, it can be a hernia even without pain. Often they aren't painful unless they become trapped and then you can have considerable pain. As long as it readily pushes back, it isn't a danger. I would have it checked out though, just to make sure that is what it is. I can only suggest possibilities based on what you've told me. It isn't like being able to see and feel it myself.
If your ob/gyn isn't concerned, then it is fine :-)
That's right. You need to palpate the abdomen both standing up and lying down to appreciate a hernia. Glad I could help :-)
