Question: Missed contraceptive pill. Take morning after pill?

 marzypan - Mon Apr 06, 2009 4:26 pm

I am currently using Yasmin and forgot a pill in the third week but did not take my 7 pill free break immediatly or continue taking the next strip directly without a break as the instructions indicated that i should. So I took the forgotten pill the next day along with the daily one, finished the last couple of tablets and then went on the 7 day break on which i am currently in the second day. In the last 48 hours i have had unprotected sex with my boyfriend and i am wondering if i should take the morning after pill tomorrow evening when i can attend a doctor?

User avatar Hello,
I'm sorry we were not able to answer you quickly here. You should not need to take plan B. You have followed protocol for the oral contraceptives when a pill is missed.

Best wishes.
