I've been on birth control for 3 weeks. I've taking my pill everyday. But I missed one day an I had sex on that day. Am I still protected?
The most important tablets not to miss are the active tablets at the start and the end of each cycle.
It sounds as though you may have missed a tablet towards the end of your cycle.
It the tablet you missed was an inactive sugar tablet you are ok and no extra precautions are necessary.
If the tablet you missed was an active tablet you will not need to take any extra precautions provided you took the tablet as soon as you remembered and miss no more tablets for the rest of your cycle.
If you are unsure or worried use another method of contraception (eg condoms) and see your doctor.
