missing pills- i dont know what to do!

i am on the 21 day pack of the pill. For the first time i decided that instead of not taking the pill for seven days, i would just start up with the next pack so that i wouldnt get a period this month. however on the 5th days i realized i forgot to take the pill the day before. so i took two pills at the same time that i usually take the pill. but with my luck i wasnt feeling too good and i ended up throwing up within ten minutes. the next day i got my period, but i am already 7 days into my pack of pills. what should i do, do i keep taking the pill, or stop, im so confused!

Re: missing pills

That's a tricky one. Trying to skip your period is very iffy, and despite all the talk about there being no reason for your body to menstruate, the problem is, it WANTs to...

First off, you're not on a tri-phasil pill, right? (Those don't work for skipping periods at all). Personally, I would stop the pills for the next few days and then start back up. Missing those 2 pills was enough to tell your body it's time to menstruate, so that's what it's doing to do. You can either try to fight it by continuing with the pills (and possibly face spotting the rest of the month), or let your body finish its cycle.
