I just started my pack of birth control on Sunday June 24, 2012. By accident, I dropped the first pill &lost it. But I took the pill for Monday in its place. Is that okay? Do I have to use condoms if I'm on the pill in general?

Hi Monia_,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  Everytime you miss a pill, your chances for pregnancy is possible.  You might need a backup, such as a condom. 

Here are some resources for you
