I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and the next day took 4 of my birth control pills then 12 hours later took 4 more. I was not on the pill regularly. That was 2 weeks ago. When I have done that in the past I'd have my period 6 days later. I have been cramping off and on the last week. I am due for my period tomorrow. Any suggestions?

You have to take BC pills on a reg basis for them to work. Loading up on them all at once will not work, and even if you do get a period it could be because your messing with all the hormones, not taking them, and then loading up. You need to consider the morning after pill when something like this happens, and you don't want to become pregnant. You should also always use some form of BC, if your not trying to conceive.
