Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your post and for being a part of the EmpowHer Community. I'm confused. Why do you need to wait a few days to get your prescription filled? Most doctors can immediately issue a prescription or call in a prescription to your local pharmacy of choice if you need a refill. Have you called your doctor or clinic about this? You may want to, and explain the situation. You also may want to get some condoms for cases like this. If you are trying to avoid pregnancy and STDs it is the surest way. Otherwise, you may want to abstain from sex until you can get back on your prescription. You owe it to yourself to take care of yourself and avoid any unnecessary accidents. Good luck!
