I missed one active pill in the 3rd week pack the day I had unprotected sex. What should I do?

I've use birth control for six months and taken it on time.

Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

I assume you know you make the missed pill up straight away and the next pill at the usual time. If you did this, you are not at any extra risk for pregnancy even if you had sex.
