Hi my name is shan,
I have been on yasmin for 6years now! I am usually very good at taking my pill but these past few months have been hectic! I started off this month badly as I completely forgot to start my pill on the saturday. I woke up sun morning realised I had forgotten and took 2 pills immediately. For the next 2 days I proceeded to take pill as should. I then forgot to take my pill on the 5th day but as I woke up a took 2 pills. This left me with one pill left to take in my first week in which I took as normal. I have not forgotten since to take my pills! The thing is I did have unprotected sex on the 5th day but have not had any sexual activity since! I know that by missing your pills increases your chances of falling pregnant but am I at high risk to falling pregnant now! I know that your 1st week is most crucial but I did double up immediately after I realised I had forgotten!! Hope you can help!
