I missed two birth control pills the last two days because I was going away, and left them at home by accident. Anyhow, I got my period and I didn't have sex the entire time I was on it. I just started my new pack on sunday, and well I had sex with my bf today (Tuesday) so I've taken 3 pills, he came in me and now I am terrified.... I am not sure what to do here? Please Help!

Hi Anonymous,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. The best thing you can do is keep taking your pills regularly. You can call your prescribing doctor and ask if they think you should take emergency contraception.
For more information, please review these articles: Missing Birth Control Pills and Concerned About Pregnancy: Q&A, and Oops! Missed Birth Control Pill Advocacy Sheet.
Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
