I'm on birth control pills (Microgestin) and I am usually on time every day but for some reason I missed one pill two or three days ago. I took one yesterday, but today I had unprotected sex and he came inside. After sex was when I realized I had previously missed a pill so I immediately took the pill for today and the one I supposedly missed (so I took two pills today). Should I also take Plan B? I'm so nervous since I feel like I've been off by a day from my pills, thank you guys for your help.
vicki202; To be safe if you have not taken the plan b by now you should as soon as you can the longer you wait the less effective it is also. But it sounds like you messed up on several days this month and this is also a low dose birth control your on anyway or if in dought take a pregnancy test. Or see your doctor you don't need a big problem by not taking the plan B And read it well because it really messes with your hormones also and your period well be very late most the time and a dark brown period which is not really your real period so you could have another also soon after the first one and mood swings nausea etc.But it is better to be safe than sorry and you messed up on your regular pills to so you are at high risk.I believe it is you have to take the Plan B within 72 hours and that is when it is not as effective but your body well tell you shortly.and if any questions check with your doctor. good luck. hope it all works out for you Chuck1957
