I forgot to take my pill on Monday and i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend the next day, and then took the Tuesday pill late, it's now Wednesday and i'm scared I could be pregnant. Any help on what I should do would be great.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

You can potentially take emergency contraception but I don't think your pregnancy risk is very high - what week are you in?

If you are worried, take EC now (the sooner you take it , the better) or just take the risk you'll be fine. Your odds of pregnancy are very low.
