I just started a new packet of Yasmin after my 7 day pill free days and I took my pill late on the second day which was Friday and I was late again on Saturday I was just wondering if I was to have sex this weekend would I be protected no? Thanks
It's important to take "the pill" at nearly the same time everyday. If you have been on a birth control pill for sometime, you should be ok. I just wouldn't make a habit of it. There are apps for smart phones, one called P Tracker, that can remind you. For a while I had an alarm go off on my phone everyday at the same time to remind me. If you are having trouble remembering to take your pill, talk with your Healthcare Provider and ask if they have other options. For example there are implants that go in your arm, IUD's that are implanted and can be removed later and NuvaRing. I didn't have much success with NuvaRing though, I couldn't get it in the right place and I could always feel it. But it's popular so I'm sure I was just using it wrong. If you are really concerned just don't take the chance. Use a condom or a spermicidal foam that you can purchase at your local drug store. It can be inserted inside of your vagina before sexual activity. Good luck!!
