@Dr_Paula One month break off pill and restarting it


Hello. I was wondering if it’s safe to restart the combined pill after taking one month off and not getting period. I restarted the pill to try and regulate things again. Is this ok?


Hello @sarahg

Yes thats absolutely fine as long as you know you are not pregnant. If you have been at risk of pregnancy then do a pregnancy test before you start taking the pill again and then 3 weeks after you start.

Many thanks



Hello @Dr_Paula,

Thank you for your response.I have had two regular periods since the last time I had sex and then decided to take the month break and restart it a couple of days ok. Is this ok?

Many thanks.
