Heavy period last month. No period this month
Jujul4 posted:
I have been on my birth control for 3 years now. Rarely miss a pill. Last month I had a really heavy period. Which I get them occasionally. This month I haven't had a period. I'm five days late. And I start my new pack of birth control on Friday. I don't know what I should do. Please help.

Skipping a period while on birth control is common and usually nothing to worry about. If you've had sex, take a test just to make sure you aren't pregnant and if you aren't, start taking your pills as scheduled.
