I take Quasense as regular birth control and have been on the pill (various brands) for at least 4 years. I missed the following pills: Saturday of week 11, and Sunday of week 12. I remembered to take Monday's (today) pill at midnight (I usually take them at 3-4pm) so I think I've technically only missed two pills. I read that Quasense can be used as emergency contraception. (I had unprotected sex on Sunday night (more like 3am Monday morning actually). Since I'm kind of stressing out now, I'm thinking I'm going to take three more pills to make four pills, and then I'm going to take four pills at noon tomorrow, which would be 12 hours after the first four as instructed. This conveniently uses up the rest of my active pills in my 13-week pack. Should I start my new pack on Sunday then? This would be a week earlier than if I hadn't forgotten any pills, but since I won't be taking any pills after tomorrow, I am thinking I should start on Sunday. Will I be getting my period soon? I'm already spotting like my period is starting and I'm wondering if that's because my body thinks I missed almost 3 pills and if it had been the end of my pack, my period would have started anyways. To sum up... should I use up the rest of my pills to take them as emergency contraception? Or should I double up tonight and tomorrow and then finish my pack and have my period next week?? Please help! I think if I don't get a response in the next few hours, I will just take the pills as emergency contraception and deal with the funky period for a couple weeks. I cannot get pregnant!
