User avatar Hello,
There is no need to take plan B emergency contraception if you are taking birth control pills daily as prescribed. These are very effective even without backup protection. Often the condoms are used in conjunction for that rare possibility of pregnancy, if you miss pills or want protection from sexually transmitted disease. I would not recommend the strong hormones of the morning after pill along with regular pills unless there are special circumstances such as missed pills.

Best wishes.
