Patient :Hello!! I just have a question, I am on the pill and had sex this afternoon without a condom. I generally take the pill everyday at around the same time. I can't remember exactly what day, but one of the days on this pack i forgot to take the pill, which meant the next day i took two pills to make up for it. I know there is always a chance of pregnancy as nothing (except abstinence) is 100% effective, but do you think my pill is still effective even though somewhere in the pack i took one pill a day late? Also, i never seem to start the new packets at the exact right time after i have my period. i usually start the new packet again up to a week after my period has finished, is this bad? I'm just not sure whether to freak out and buy the morning after pill or not. thank you in advanced!!!
