hi Doctor, so I dont need to swallow two pills one after another 2 hr break? just continue 4 coming days and I guess dont worry? I always worry as dont want to get pregnant. What if the bleeding doesnt come as always did on Saturday 5th? is it possible it wont come cause of those 2 pills missed?
That is correct since you are almost at the end of your pill cycle.No need. Best wishes

can I just ask what should I do if bleeding doesnt come as normal on Saturday 5th? cause of these 2 pills not taken?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
continue as normal after 7 days break new pills? and not worry there was no bleeding ? Im in a relationship wouldnt want to stress...
You can start the next cycle as usual without waiting for the bleeding in that case. Best wishes

so it could be possible there will be no bledding because of missing 2 pills or a big possibility it will still be there?
That is a small possibility but that does not mean pregnancy at all.

last question: if bleeding doesnt come: should I get preganancy test (and start pills as always after week) or thats overreacting?
You do not need to pregnancy test --that is overreaction.Best wishes

hi Doctor I dont know if youre still here, but I'll give it a go. Wanted to ask you as taking the 4 pills remaining as you suggested but my period came early got it since yesterday cause of forgetting the 2 pills I guess 'it thought' its time to come when it should be coming next Staurday. As you suggested Im still continuing on last pills from packet till Tuesday but just wanted to ask: is that ok that period came early? next weekend wont get it again for sure thats ok? do you think now my period will be off routine and come early? happy it came but worried it came week before cause of those 2 pills not taken :( Ill continue on last pills till Tuesday but just a bit worried I messed it all up. thank you

Basically would like to know is that worrying that period came straight next day after our consultation? should I continue as you said on those pills till tuesday (took yesterday pill have 3 more), and do you think next month itll come back to normal as Ill make sure I take them everyday?
No this is not concerning.You can continue as usual.And start your next pack as usual.Your period should be back to normal next month.Best wishes
