I am on minastrin 24 fe and missed on active pill on Friday, took it on Saturday and took them normally until Monday, the day before the inactive pills. Like an idiot, I conpletely forgot to take the one I missed, so I essentially have 5 days of inactive pills instead of 4. On Wednesday I had unprotected sex. On Thursday morning I had gotten my usual period and thought that meant there was no way I was pregnant. But being the worry wort I am and because I haven't been taking the pills as correctly as I shoukd, I got plan b that day and took it approx. 10 hours after unprotected sex. My period pretty much stopped after Thursday, even though i didn't take my first active pill of the new pack until yesterday (Friday), though there was some light streaking. I had thought the plan b was a silly precaution and that I didn't really need to take it since I had gotten my period after unprotected sex, but considering the missed pills, was plan b actually more necessary than I thought?
I don't know at this point, I'm still trying to sort out what you did, lolol... When you miss the last active pill you should then move your day to start the next pack. Another words if it was friday, move it to thursday.You never take more then a 4 day break from your active pills. You probably needed the plan B, because of the pile of the mistakes in a short amount of time. Get an alarm to remind you or something.
