I'm on micronor and I missed only 1 pill, I just started taking it on april 21 and I missed 1 pill that saturday. I had unprotected s_x on may 6, because I thought I'd be protected by the pill. However still no period yet. could I be pregnant?? and is it too early to test??

I got pregnant by missing one pill. I think your risk is higher if you miss a pill in the first 2 weeks, or if you start your pack a day late. I would definitely test. When you miss a pill your hormone levels are no longer telling your body not to ovulate, which is how you get pregnant on the pill.

absolutely, I would test, especially if your period is late. Most pills regulate your period rather than making it erratic, so it is probably not your body getting adjusted to the pill. Also, you need to take the pill for at least 7 days in a row for it to be effective, and as soon as you miss one, your body will ovulate, so you really have to start all over again to build up the supply of hormones. Anyway, all that is irrelevant now, hope you get the test result you are after, it may just be stress or something else, my periods have occasionally been late in the past for unknown reasons. Good luck

I got pregnant twice on the pill - once for missing one and this time for starting a pack late...YES it does happen...go take a test and ease your mind. Good luck:)
