Morning after pill

Good Day

Me and my boyfriend had sex on Sunday and I forgot to drink my pill on Sunday I had a Morning after pill on Monday and I start drinking my active pills on Wednesday and still didn't get my period.
Can you please give advice. We made love before and I didn't have morning after pill because I am on the pill my boyfriend just said because I skip a day I must have one just to be sure.

Thank you

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am glad you reached out to us with your concern.

It would have been better to make up for the missed dose of birth control pill as soon as you realized it, and to have used a condom during intercourse on Sunday.

Did you take your active birth control pill on Monday and Tuesday?

The morning after pill contains a high dose of the same hormone found in most birth control pills. Taking the pill and missing doses of your birth control pills could have caused a hormonal imbalance.

Are you taking the inactive pills now? When were you due to have withdrawal bleeding or your "period"?

If you have no bleeding by the end of the week, contact your gynecologist. Report what has happened before you start a new pack.
