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.

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!

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.
