"i'm currently on a combination pill (have been for the past 2 years) I started a new pack and had taken the pill for 5 consecutive days and missed taking the 6th but doubled up the next day when I realized. Is emergency contraceptive necessary if I had sex 2 days before that missed pill. So I had sex on Tuesday evening but didn't realize a pill had been missed until Saturday, almost 4 days later.
I've been told that what I did was correct and that I should be ok, but I wonder in what instances does a person take plan b. is it usually when you've had sex and then realize you missed a pill or pills. or is it anytime you miss a pill. and had sex before or after that missed pill. I've continued to take the rest of my pack (another 2 weeks worth) and will start the placebo week tomorrow."
