Hi there,

Looking at one of your previous posts, you have been taking Yasmin since July 2008. Is that correct?

If so, you receive the full protection that the pill offers. It does not matter whether you have intercourse during the active or inactive pills.

If you miss just one pill, you do not have to worry about reduced effectiveness of the pill. If you miss two or more pills, you need to think about using emergency contraception, depending on when in your cycle it happens.
