hi guys, so i am on the pill and i missed the last one before my period. I had my period and continued taking my pill. I had taken my pill for a week since my period had ended and then i had unprotected sex (on the 14th of may). I was scared so i went and got the morning after pill (on the 15th of may). It is now the 22nd of may and i have unprotected sex again and he finished in me. I have been talking my pill consistently for he past week. What do i do? please help

Hello and welcome to EmpowHER,
Birth control pills prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation. If there is no egg to fertilize, pregnancy cannot occur. So, when you're on the pill, you are fully protected and you should not use emergency contraception at the same time. When you take them at the same time, it can cause moderate to severe symptoms because of the hormonal imbalances it causes.
Since you were taking birth control pills consistently when you have intercourse, you cannot become pregnant.
Keep in mind that although missing a pill can reduce their effectiveness, it usually takes 1-2 weeks of being off the pill to ovulate.
You do not need to do anything, simply keep taking the pills as usual.
