I’m worried and I don’t normally get worried about this stuff.
I’ve been on birth control for 5 years.
I just had my period and was supposed to start taking my pills again on Sunday. I realized last night (Monday night) that I hadn’t taken my Sunday or Monday pill (I usually take my pill as soon as I wake up). As soon as I realized it, I took both Sunday and Monday then this morning I took my Tuesday pill.
I THINK I’m fine… but I’m scared to get pregnant… we dont use condoms and dont have any in the house.
Am I fine? Should I be worried?

hmm…I think that the first pills after you have had your period are the most important ones…have you had sex yet since you missed the pills? I would use a back up method for the next week…

I think you should be okay, but maybe you could go out and buy condoms to use for a little bit to be extra safe?

did you get intimate with your bf during the past 2 days?
i think you are ok because i also once forgot 2 pills and had to take them on day 3. if you are still worried, get Plan B from drug stores and take it immediately.

I feel like we’d be fine… if I WANTED to get pregnant right now, I dont think I could because I’ve been on the pill for so long.

if you haven’t had sex in the days where you didn’t take pills you should be fine. You’re not completely protected for 7 days though, so use backup for a week.

How would you have gotten pregnant if you haven’t had sex?
Anytime I forget the pill I just take it as soon as I remember and I have always been fine. I know it’s not that way for everyone though. I guess if you wanted to be sure you could use condoms for the next week or so, but then again they’re not 100% effective either 🙂

I would definitely wait or purchase condoms for a week just to be sure…if you’re really concerned about it!

I gonna say you’ll be ok. I have been on the same pill for almost 10 years and thats happened to me before and I was fine.

You need to wait until you have taken the pill again for 7 days straight to be protected. I think if you miss 3 in a row, then you need to start a whole new pack though.
