I started a new box of birth control pills last monday and on the fifth day I forgot to take one of the active pills. I took two pills the next day exactly 24 hours after I was supposed to have taken the one I missed (this saturday).
Yesterday me and my boyfriend didn't use the condom properly (we only used it for him yo ejaculate). I was wondering if I should get emergency contraception, since I'm still on time, or if it's not neccesary.
Should I do so, I would get non-prescription pills I've read work as EC in my country.
The pills I take are Femelle 20 (3 mg drospirenone and 20 mcg ethinylestradiol per tablet). Also, if I were to get EC can I still take the rest of my pills normally?
