my husband and I had unprotected sex but I forgot to take my birth control pills for two days due to my hectic schedule, what should I do?

Hi Anon

You need to google the brand you use and follow those directions. 

In general, it's recommended to take both missed pills straight away and then take you regular pill that day too. That's three in one day. Then use a condom for the next 7 days.
