So I've been on birth control for about 5 months now. Tuesday I threw up 20 minutes after taking my pill (at the normal time I take it like usual). My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. I realized Sunday night that throwing up meant I missed my pill, and i didn't double up the day I missed it because it never crossed my mind. It was in my 2nd week of the pack. He never came inside me. As soon as I realized I was unprotected (Sunday night was when I realized it) I took an ECP just yo be sure, but it was 3 days after the first time we had sex. How likely is it that I could still get pregnant? I've never missed a pill before this, either. So how should I go about the rest of my pack? Would I still take my inactive pills? Or go to a new pack instead? And if I skip my inactive pills and start a new pack would I still get my period that week?
Just keep taking your pills according to schedule. Its too late for the missed pill to be corrected. You probably didn't need the ecp because even tho missing a pill increases your risk of pregnancy, its not allot. Take your inactive pills like always. Don't expect to have a period tho because the ecp is large bolus of hormones and almost always causes delayed period. Its not a big thing tho, its normal. There is only a small chance of pregnancy. You may not have even thrown up the pill. They don't come up as easily as people think. I wouldn't worry too much if I were you.
