I usually take my birth control at 10:30pm, but last night I didn't take it until 1am. I had sex between those times last night --should I take Plan B? And do I need to use condoms for the next week? I'm currently on my 3rd week of birth control if that helps. Thanks.
PJ'S Here is some information and you have nothing to worry about if you take the combination pill like your as long as it's only once during the cycle and you take the pill within a few hours to 20 hours you are okay and you do not need to use a backup. Here are a copy and paste that tells more. from the manufacturing site. ((( If you miss a pill, you should take the pill you missed as soon as you can. If you take the pill less than 24 hours after you were supposed to and it's not the first week of a new pack, you don't need a backup method—just take the pill you missed and relax. If it's the first week of a new pack of pills, you'll want to use a backup method like condoms if you have sex in the 7 days after missing your pill.
