I missed one of my pills the second week of starting a new pack. I have been using my pills ever since, and I even doubled up for the day I missed. However, I am still afraid because we had unprotected not too long after I missed my pill. Should I be worried?

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question!

As long as you doubled up, your risk has not been raised so you can relax!
