The first time I missed a dose was Saturday of the first week. I missed another dose today, a week and a half later (Wednesday of the third week). Am I protected? Everything I have read says that I must use a form of birth control if I miss 2 pills in a row. It says nothing about missing a dose within the same month. Please help!
If you know you missed a pill today, did you take it now? Every time you miss a dose you lessen your protection slightly. When you miss a pill, you're supposed to take it as soon as you remember even if it means taking two together. If you did that the first time, and then did good for all this time, now missed again, the two events aren't related. But you still should make an attempt not to be missing them.
