I use a mail order pharmacy for my BCP's, and I get 3 months worth at a time. Last weekend I took my last one, and placed my order on Sunday. Well I need to start my new pack today, and they're not here yet. I tracked the package and they've been in Greensboro since the 27th! So I'm not sure what the hold up is! I can only assume they'll be here tomorrow (but I also assumed they'd be here by like last Friday).
I have a prescription I could go get filled, but it was written last May. Would they still take it? I had gotten one prescription at my 6 week pp checkup, and that's what I've been using (I didn't get my first pp period until 16 weeks pp, so I didn't fill it for awhile after that visit). Then at my annual exam, my gyn wrote another one, which is the one I have.
Obviously, with the roads being so awful, I'm wondering if it's worth getting out to get it filled. I'd only have to drive about a mile. If the package arrives tomorrow, I'll already have to take 2, and it would be in the afternoon. I usually take them first thing in the morning. It's not the mini-pill, so I guess time of day isn't as important. But, if they don't come Tuesday, I think I'd already be too far gone, and would have to wait until the next month, right?
Ugh... why didn't I refill it before I was out? Grrr... WWYD? Brave the roads, or just hope/assume the mail order one will arrive tomorrow, and take today's and tomorrow's pill then? Or just skip a month of BCP's and take other precautions? (Which means DH will probably avoid me like the plague. hehe)
