so my girlfriend has been in the pill for about 9 months and she forgot to take it one day but she took two the day after and she's been taking it on time from since that day but we had sex two days after she forgot to take it and the condom broke but i still pulled out should we be worried ? It help a lot if you could answer this
Taking two to make up for the missed dose won't help, not a good idea. Nine months is long enough for the pill to be well and truly working and keeping her period regular. Please don't be scared, the extra pill won't hurt her, and depending on whereabouts in her cycle this happened, risk is very low. The window in which pregnancy can occur is around the end of the slip, before the sugar pills. It is surprisingly difficult to become pregnant, considering the window. The reason the pill has to be taken everyday, is to establish hormonal pattern, and sperm can survive inside her for a few days. There is always risk when you miss a dose, but pregnancy is often unlikely due to a 'singularity' event, as you mentioned. You will know for sure when she gets her next period within the month. If its over a week 'late', then see a doctor. There is not much else you can do, but please use a condom until after her period, to further minimise risk, as the cycle has been comprimised. Very very unlikely, you will be ok. This has happened to me many times.
