Dear victoriaaaaa

Thanks for your question and welcome!

You may not have needed to throw your pack out and start afresh if you missed only two pills and then made up those pills as instructed. Keep on taking your pills until you know differently.

There should be no need for your boyfriend to "pull out" in general, if you're on the pill. And that method does work well for some women but you're better to use condoms as a back up (if you miss pills), not the withdrawal method as you are correct, semen can contain sperm.

Take a pregnancy test if you think you may be pregnant - you'll need to wait until your period is expected within 3-5 days.

I hope this helps you!
