Will I get pregnant?

Patient: Is it ok if I took my last birth control pill of the month yesterday will I still be protected today if we do anything



Symptoms: Body aches , chest pains



Doctor: Hi,Thanks for the query.I understand your concern.If you have taken 21 contraceptive pills daily without missin g, it will give protection during next one week of pill free period also.If you have missed any pills especially during last week of the month, better to use some additional protective measure like barrier method.Take care.
