well
AGIAN i screw up
whats wrong with me?? Geezus!


I realize TODAY!! [Saturday] that i had an extra
pill. I forgot to take it Thursday, it was a busy day and it didn't cross my mind, unfortunately.
I think i missed it Thursday
Gahhh i dunno

But none the less, i had intercourse and oral today and yesterday.
We used spermicidal condoms
but the one thing that always made me feel safe about birth control is, that me AND him are new at sex, and it felt like a safe backup if something were to leak out, or accidently touch or something.


AGIAN!!! Should i be worried?? :/

as long as the condom didn't rupture, and yo used it for ALL sexual contact, you should be okay.

But if you're prone to forgetting your pills, either set an alarm on your phone, or switch to Ortho-Evra patches or NuvaRing. that way, it's harder to forget.

Since Gumdrop was addressing a potential pregnancy risk -- not an STI risk -- not using a condom for oral sex doesn't impact that. In other words, if you used it for all contact which could create a pregnancy risk, and there was no failure, a pregnancy risk isn't likely.

But it does sound like you might want to consider switching to something you have to remember often since you've been having some issues with the pill.
