birth control help

I had sex with my boyfriend last night without protection, but I did take my birth control yesterday. However, I went home today and accidentally left my birth control at school. I will be missing the last two pills of week one and my first pill of my week 2, because I won't be able to take my pills again until Monday. Am I covered for having sex with him yesterday, or should I take Plan B?

Hi cupcake37,
Since sperm can live inside your body for up to 5 days, you can certainly take Plan B as an added precaution. You may also double up on your Pill once you return to school. Your best bet is to call your Pharmacist and explain to him/her your situation as they will be able to better answer this question since they know the brand you are using. Can you keep us posted on what they say and also add to this comment the brand of Pill you are using.

Thanks and good luck,
