Hi. I started my pill at start of month. Two weeks in I forgot to take it for two days. I then had sex. I took the two pills I missed and the one for the third day on the same day. I then still felt anxious so I took the morning after pill. Am I covered in regards to pregnancy? And will this likely affect my next periods because of the hormones.

Hello AnonymousK3450,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us with your question.

i would think you were protected because you made up for the missed doses and took an emergency contraceptive. Please follow up with your gynecologist. You have given your body a high dose of hormones.
