I have been on Sprintec for years, and do not miss taking it everyday. However, if I don't happen to use a condom, can I take an extra pill or two just to be sure?
NO. You don't need to. As long as you're taking your pills correctly there is less then a 1% chance of pregnancy. Taking extra ones can't possibly make it better. And don't even mention something like plan B. When you are on bc pills you do not ovulate. All morning after pills do is delay ovulation but you don't ovulate. You don't need a condom because you don't have an egg to fertilize.
