My dh & I went away for the weekend & I forgot my tri-sprintec at home. I didn't realize until the next morning after we had unprotected sex that I had forgotten my pills. UGH! I missed day 8 and 9 of my pills (light blue). Since we got home I've taken both missed pills and my regularly scheduled pill. I'm freaking out some since an unplanned pregnancy isn't what we need right now. Last December I switched BC and had gotten pregnant. I never missed a pill while on them but was not taking them at the exact same time every day, ex 1 to 4 hours off at a time and got pregnant. I miscarried shortly after finding out, within a week. I was a hormonal mess for MONTHS afterwards, so dreading the aftermath of missing these pills and knowing that pregnancy can happen. Any insights to calm my fears anyone??
You still should be using a condom for the first week back on the pill. It decreases your protection to miss 2 in a row. You still have some protection You did what you were supposed to in this instance. This happens to so many women, why don't you carry them in your handbag? Then they are with you no matter where you are.
