Last night I had sex and at first we didn't use a condom

Patient

Q: Last night I had sex and at first we didn't use a condom but before he climaxed we did, I took my birth control for months perfectly fine and not missing any pills. Last night before bed, I took the sunday pill instead of yesterday's pill which was saturday. Am I protected?

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Since you have been taking the pills regularly, a single dose which is missed may not be a problem. I think you are still protected, as you used a condom at the same time.

I hope this answers your query.
