Just would like to ask. I have just used this pill recently after giving birth last March. I started using it last May 13 but on May 24 I accidenatlly took the pill for June 7 and just continued using the pills for June 7-9 then went back to the pill for May 27. Now I'm bothered because my mens came back last May 29. Is this because of the wrong pill I've taken?Is this normal? Can I possibly get pregnant because of this?
