I normally take my pill at around 10am each morning, on Tuesday I was out and didn't have my pill so didn't end up taking it until about 11pm. I took it normal time on Wednesday morning then had unprotected sex on Wednesday evening, will I still be protected or should I get the morning after pill today?

I missed a pill on my 3rd week. When I remembered it was the next day, at the time I didn't know that if you miss a pill you are supposed to take two the next day so I didn't. The next two days I had protected sex with spermicide condoms. That was about two weeks ago. and now I am about a week late with my period. What are my chances of being pregnant?

Hi, i am on generess fe and I forgot to take my pill on Wednesday night, so Thursday night at 8pm I took two at the same time. Then on Friday night I forgot to take it again and remembered as soon as I woke up Saturday morning to take it. Am I still protected? Im going on vacation with my boyfriend in a week and I'm just wondering if I should use a back up method.

Hi Anon

You should be covered but you really need to set an alarm so that this doesn't happen anymore as you are walking a fine line! 

Have a great vacation!

I forgot to take my week 2 pills only on Monday and Friday but made up for both on Tuesday and Saturday mornings. Am I still protected?

I missed my pill last Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on Thursday and I carried on taking my pill on Friday but didn't make up for the 3 pills I'd missed and then on Saturday I started bleeding but I'm not due to have my pill break for another 2 weeks or so? Could I be pregnant?

Hi Anon

The bleeding is due to missing your pill. Use a back up method of contraception for the next 7 days. If you don't get your period when expected, test for pregnancy.

Best,

Susan

I was bleeding for 4 days and it stopped for a day and now its carrying on... My lower back and stomach are constantly aching. Is this still because I missed the few days of my pill?

I started the pill 2 weeks ago after having Implant for almost 3 years. I missed 4 pills and didn't make up for any, I had unprotected sex all four days and the day before I missed them. I started bleeding yesterday. Is there a chance I could be pregnant?
