Just a general question: If you completely miss a pill and you're worried about getting pregnant as a result, is it possible to get the EC pill? Does it actually work when you're on the pill?

Secondly: I've been irritated "down there" for a few days now. It's not itcy or painful throughout the day, only if I touch myself there or wipe after the toilet. I think my discharge is normal, doesn't smell or anything. Could it just be abrasion from sex? Maybe I wasn't lubricated enough and it caused irritation? Thanks.

It's possible to get EC while you're on the pill and it would work, but you'd really want to check with a doctor to see if it's necessary in terms of when you missed the pill.

It's entirely possible that your soreness is coming from abrasion or friction during sex. If that's the case, it should clear up within a few days.
