Hello Anon

Thank you for writing!

When you are on the Pill and don't miss pills there is no need to take emergency pills as well. This will not protect you even more, it really only serves to disrupt your cycle. Your symptoms may be from taking EC or they could be PMS - both symptoms are similar. There should be no risk of pregnancy.
