Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

There is no need to be concerned about pregnancy if you have had your period since missing the pills as this bleeding is called "withdrawal bleeding" due to missing pills. This is normal. You can restart your pills with a new pack (it need to be a brand new pack) at any time but you need to use a condom for 7-10 days as a precaution.
