I take the pill without taking the sugar pills for a few months. I missed a pill and took two the next morning. I missed the next pill and again had to take two the next morning. Ive since taken more than seven consecutive pills and had unprotected sex yesterday (so I know I should be fine). But I understand you can get pregnant if you miss a pill after having unprotected sex. Is this true because I am now getting breakthrough bleeding and want to have a period to prevent this which means skipping the active pills. Can I do this if I have missed a pill in the last 21 days?
