I had unprotected sex last night and I'm on birth control (third week) however I did miss a pill a few days ago. Is it wise to try and use birth control as an ec even though I'm already on it? If so, what do I take? I'm on norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol.
NO. The biggest point of regular birth control is that you don't need ecps. With the pill you are protected more than 99%. The best an ecp can hope for is 95%..Also all it does is delay ovulation. When you are on the pill you do not ovulate. You didn't have unprotected sex, you are protected by the pill.
