Soo... ive been on birth control for 6 years and im usually pretty good about remembering my pills. This week i have forgotten my pill twice on the second week of my pill pack. This is what happened i forgot to take my pill thur night but took it fri thinking i was taking my friday pill but really it was the thurs one. Saturday i forgot to take my pill, woke up sun and remembered i didnt take my pill last night and then I noticed that i hadn't taken thur or sat. So i just went ahead and took thur and sat. But technically i didn't miss two days in a row. My question is should i get the plan b pill i had sex thur and sat but no ejaculation inside me.

Correct. Yes i had sex thurs night and sat night but had a pill inbetween the two days i forgot. My concern about taking the plan b pills was i didn't know if it was safe to take two bc pills plus the plan b. But if its ok to take it i will just to be extra sure.

Let's see if I've got this correct:
Thursday: forgot pill
Friday: took Thursday's pill; forgot Friday's
Saturday: forgot to take Saturday pill
Sunday: took Saturday's pill and Friday's pill (did not take Sunday's)

Tomorrow (Monday), you will want to double-up again and take Sunday's pill and Monday's pill. That should bring you up-to-date.

You are asking about Plan B. Did you recently have sex during this time that you forgot pills? Has it been less than 120 hours since you had sex? You might consider using it, but it might not be necessary, since you have had hormones in your body every-other day.
