    Okay so basically I've just changed pills - from a monophasic to a triphasic.

    Once I had finished my monophasic box I moved straight onto my triphasics as I would normally take the pill; ie start in the red section.

    For some reason, it never occurred to me to check the pill insert til about 10 days into this cycle. Apparently I was meant to use a barrier method for atleast the first week. :dohh:

    Now I'm paranoid. Super paranoid. I've been on this pill previously, I used it before TTC my two kids and I had NO symptoms. Not a thing, that's why I wanted to use it again. But now I have.. stuff happening...

    Like my boobs are taking over my upper body, and they have some serious blue veins going on - think roadmap. And they ache sooo bad as well!

    I dunno. Just a bit worried at this point, DH and I wanted to wait a few years before TTC#3.

    Sorry to ramble on, just want to vent it out there without sounding like a total whackjob!

    If you were taking pills before you should be covered (I think) if you didn't skip anything. Even when first beginning any pill many people say you're covered from day 1. I wouldn't stress too much as it could make AF late and cause you to worry even more!

    I went from a mono to a tri last month and apart from a dodgy bleed mid cycle last week, all has been well. My doc said I would be ok without extra contraception x
