I am on a form of loestrin 24 bec they don't make loestrin anymore... and I've been taking my pill but not at the same time everyday leading up to last night when I had sex. I'm suppose to take it at 7pm every night but recently I've been forgetting and have been taking it the next morning and then taking my scheduled pill for that day at night. Is this a problem? should i take plan b? I've been on birth control for a lonnggg time so I was thinking that I'm probably safe but I wasn't sure... also ... I start the blank pills on Wednesday and I should get my period... hopefully! please help !
No no no. Even by taking them late you are still more protected then you would be from plan B. Plan B is not a magic potion. Its only 80% effective at best. The pill is 99% effective, so when you take the pill late it decreases that a bit, but never down to the 80%. All you would do by taking it is screw up your cycle. Try to get better at taking it on time, set an alarm on your phone to remind you.
