Hi everyone!



So my husband and I have a beautiful little 8 month old boy who we love to death and i stay home full time with him while my husband is out at his construction job, however we werent planning to have another for another year or so... but now im beginning to wonder if my bc pill failed me. See, I was taking marvelon and I think it would have been around mid-august that i missed 3 pills in a row. I read the instructions but they weren't very clear because they said that if i missed in the second week to keep taking a pill a day (memory a bit foggy on this one...?) and in the third to start a new pack.. well because that was for 2 days what it said, the first day i remembered i took 2 pills then one the next day, but because i was right between the 2nd and 3rd week of the month, it was unclear which i was to follow and by this time i had breakthrough started so i started a new pack, hoping that this would fix the problem. Well, it didnt because it continued for a month. Then a break of three days, then the real thing, so i bthen i stopped taking it because i figured it was screwing up my body too much and now i cant remember if ive had a period since then but i know for sure nothing in over a month.. have any of you had anything like this happen??? I'm so confused with this!!

well, just got the news that im not pregnant, so i will go back on the pill and just be more careful about not missing, i have other pills i have to take anyways for epilepsy so it is still the best method for me, thanks for your responses

I had Paraguard in me for about 8 months and then I found out I was pregnant again!!! My kids will be 17 months apart!

I'm confused too! :) Take a pregnancy test and maybe look for a different form of birth control. Starting and stopping and taking more than one in a day is not good for your body.
