I'm always timely about taking my birth control. So this is new to me..But last night when I went to take my pill I realized that the day befores pill was still in the pack. I panicked because I wasn't sure which day I had missed so I went to my local pharmacy in picked up plan B, even though in hindsight I feel as though I may not have needed to, but my question is how long till I am protected from pregnancy again? I am going to continue taking my birth control today as a normal.
It depends on which pills you take/took.
If you put the name of your regular birth control pills into the search box at the top of this page, you'll see the instructions for what to do about missed doses.
Plan B (levonorgestrel) doesn't affect your birth control pills, so you keep taking them as normal, despite taking Plan B.
It is is the other emergency pill, Ulipristal Acetate, that means you need to use back up birth control for the month.
