@fitzgj34:  first, calm down. Second, do your pills (the new one you took) have instructions  on what to do when changing pills? 

Consult your doctor, or any doctor for more information, only a md can tell exactly what to do.

Talk to your doctor immediately. 

If the unprotected sex happened in the last 3 days, there is a certain number of birth control pills that you can take which will be chemically similar to Plan B.  I don’t remember exactly, but a pharmacist will be able to tell you.

After talking to your doctor, use a barrier form of birth control until your next period.

From what I understand, you have been unprotected for the past week and will remain unprotected until you are at least 7 days in to taking the actual pills.  So definitly start using a secondary method of protection until that point.

First, use a backup method of birth control (i.e. condoms) until you finish this pack.

Second, has the unprotected sex been within the last 72 hours?  If so, you can take Plan B emergency contraception to prevent a pregnancy (it won’t work if you are already pregnant though.)

Third, talk to your doctor about the error.  How did you end up taking two weeks of placebo?  Is the new pill pack switched?  It’s probably a good idea to go over the new pill pack with a nurse or your doctor so you can find out what happened.

@fitzgj34:  If you took a week off and then did a week of placebo pills, yes, that is 2 weeks off.

@fitzgj34:  Don’t panic! Keep taking your pill regularly and contact your doctor.  They will know exactly what to do.  Use an alternative birth control (like a condom) in the mean time and you’ll be fine.
