    Sometimes periods just skip a month if you're ill, under a lot of stress, or undertaking a lot of strenuous exercise. I would say it's worth going to see your GP just to check everything's okay, for peace of mind if nothing else. Failing that, pop into a walk-in clinic and chat to a nurse.

    Oh, and yes, you can drink alcohol with the pill! Otherwise there'd be an outcry...

    Just be careful that you don't get so drunk that you vomit as this can make the pill less effective :)

    You can still drink alcohol but something a lot of women notice is that their tolerance decreases; I've become an absolute lightweight since taking the pill. I've heard a few people say this but obviously it varies from person to person!

    goshh, hope not:S:S

    I mean... I like to drink, but not to the point where I drink 2 beers and pass out:/
