... (Christmas time) and didn't realise until last night. I took the extra pill this morning (last night I had figured it was too late). It was either on the 25th or 26th, and I had unprotected sex the night of the 27th, but I know for sure I had taken one earlier that night. There is still time for Plan B, although I'm not sure if pharmacies will be open. I missed the 3rd or 4th pill of the beginning of a new package. If I can't get the plan b, or if this happens again... ??
If you missed one pill, and had started taking them again, you should be ok. Each pill missed raises your chance of pregnancy, but since its only 1% if you take the pill correctly, it won't go up much higher after only missing one pill. Why not set a reminder on your phone so it doesn't happen again.
