Could I get pregnant

I take my birth control perfectly. 24 hours ago I let my boyfriend cM inside me, and I took my last pill at 8 pm last night. I am going to miss taking the pill tonight and I'll be taking it about 16 hours late. Do I need to use a Plan B?

Hi, yayajls

Only you can decide if taking plan b is right for you. Emergency contraception is effective if you’ve had unprotected sex or experienced birth control failure. Failure can include a barrier method such as a condom breaking or missing a birth control pill. Depending on where you are in your pack, missing your birth control by one (or two doses) may not be enough reason to take Plan B. You may still be protected or your risk for pregnancy may be extremely low. You might want to check with your doctor to see if he feels you need to take plan b.
