I forgot to start my new pack of birth control so I started it on Monday (11-16) and took two pills the next day on Tuesday to catch up. Then I skipped my pill again Wednesday night and took two again on Thursday (11-19). Me and my boyfriend have unprotected sex and I didn't know if I should worry about missing my period this month.
You can't be taking your pills like that and be fully protected. When you start them late, you should use a condom for a week because going more than 7 days you have to count it as a fresh start. Then you missed it again. You have more of a chance of getting pregnant that way. Once you've taken 7 pills like you are supposed to you are protected. If you miss your period do a pregnancy test a week into the next month of pills.
