    Late period
    briannaj92 posted:
    I have been using the same bcp for a little over a year. My cycle has been on track, and periods usually last 4-5 days. But last month during my period I missed two pills on non consecutive days and I took 2 pills each day after I missed a pill. So, my period went on for 5 days, and ended on a Friday. Then, on Monday it started up again, full force, for another 5 days and even heavier than the first time. I have been taking my pills exactly at 3pm every day since I missed that second pill a month ago, but this month my period is 7 days late. Is this normal?
