Am 20 years old and I have been on the


Q: Am 20 years old and I have been on the birth control pill for about a year and a half now and i am on the 28 combination pills.. which is 21 white pills, 2 green inactive ones, and then 5 blue low dose ones. ( its call AZURETTE) i recently had sex with my boyfriend the second to last day of my cycle and the last day, which would be friday and saturday while on the blue low dose period ended on thursday. but i forgot to take them both days because i left the pack somewhere. we had sex without using a condom on these days but he did not finish inside of me. i am very good about taking my BC and was finished with my period when we had sex, but i am worried because i didn't take the two very last blue pills. i read in the pamphlet that you do not need a backup method if you miss the low dose pills but i am still unsure.
