I was supposed to start my new pack of birth control pills last night and forgot. I had unprotected sex. I will start a new pack today. What should I do?
Take that pill you missed now. Then go on with the pack. Missing one pill isn't terrible, you still have some protection, its just dropped a little bit.
Take your missed pill now then tonight take todays dose (so yes, you are going to take two pills today) then continue on with the rest of the Pills like you normally would. You may want to use back up protection fr the next seven days just to be sure.
