I want to know the advantages and disadvantages of the contraceptive pill. Last Sunday and Monday evening I forgot to take my contraceptive pill which I usually always take at 10 pm. I realised this on Tuesday afternoon, so after reading the instructions for “2 missed pills” I took the most recent pill, threw away the other one and continued to take them at the usual time from then on.
This occurred during the last week of my pack, so I did as instructed on the packet and started taking the next packet without allowing for a break.
However, since the Tuesday night even though I took the most recent missed pill and the Tuesday pill, my period arrived and I have had it for the past days (despite taking my pills as normal). My question is, is this normal? Would you please list out the advantages and disadvantages of the contraceptive pill.
Will it affect my contraception in any way? Am I doing the correct procedure? What are the advantages and disadvantages of the contraceptive pill? What about starting contraceptive pill mid cycle? Many thanks.
