I missed the first week of my pills, but I counted and took two until I was back on track. I've trusted this method before, and it worked, so I decided to trust it again a little sooner(last night), but now I'm worried about being pregnant. I should have started the third but didn't have my new pack so I started the eleventh. I'm not insanely worried, but I don't need any babies popping out. Is this a SERIOUS no-no!!!
Omg yes. You should have started it from the beginning and used a condom for the first week as if you were just starting them, which you are after not taking them for a week. You were not protected the week you should have been taking them or the first week back on them. You should have been using a condom the week you should have had pills but didn't.

If I double up on birth control pills (take two each day) for the first week, can I have sex sooner?
