If I am taking birth control pills, missed one pill

Patient: If I am taking birth control pills, missed one pill earlier this month but took it the next morning and continued taking them as usual, and have just reached the inactive pills today and had unprotected sex, should I or could I take the morning after pill just to be safe?
