I use both Mono-Linyah and condoms as contraception because I'm young, and I'm very careful when it comes to contraceptives and I take my birth control every night. I've been taking this pill since February and have not missed a single pill. So I don't usually pay attention to the day because I know I take it every night (I know this is a bad habit). I noticed that tonight (Friday) I still have Thursday's pill. Here's the thing; I know for sure I took the pill last night. So I obviously skipped a night sometime before that. I'm only a week and a half into this pack, and the last few days I've been staying up until 3 or 4 in the am with friends. Do I take Thursday now, Friday in the morning tomorrow (Saturday) and take Saturday's on time tomorrow night? Or do I skip it entirely and take tonights pill and abstain from sex? Or could I cut it in half and take one and a half tonight and one and a half tomorrow? I'm very nervous as I have been very careful to not mess with the effectiveness of the pill. Thank you for your feedback.
LoveofStarlight' I am so sorry nobody answered you so far I am sure you have resolved this problem by now. Just in case and if in dought call the doctors office right away. Normal thing is if you notice you missed the pill as soon as you notice it that night you take that night and the one you missed at the same time. This is one of the few medications that you do that with so this only is about your B/c now if your period is messed up sometimes that happens you just start the pill on the correct day Hope this helps and you are very smart to have him use a condom at the same time don't let any guy tell you they can't wear one. and make sure it is latex condoms for disease control. Until you really know that this is the person and have them check for any and all sexual transmitted disease's Just to be safe if you get to the point that he is not using a condom. Never use the lambskin ones they do not protect for disease. Please post again and let me and us know how things are going Have a good day and you are a very responsible young lady. It never takes this long to get a answer but if you don't call your doctor's office. We have been having website problems and some question got lost and are showing up now that all is fixed..Chuck1957
