Patient :Hi, I am taking Dianette as an acne treatment and contraceptive. Last night I went to my partners house and forgot to bring my pill, after having a few drinks together we ended up having sex together. I am in the first week of taking this pill, although I was on an alternative contraceptive before this, so will missing one and having sex mean that I was not protected, even though I took it as soon as the next day. Do I need an emergency contraceptive??
