I was worried about missing a single pill. I have been on birth control for about three years now and I am very responsible with it, I can't really remember ever missing a pill. I had sex with my boyfriend today without a condom and he pulled out before he finished. I got a weird feeling after we had sex and checked my bc pack... and found I had missed a pill. I got so caught up studying all night last night for my mid terms that I forgot to take it this morning. I took the pill I missed this morning right after we had sex, around 11:00 pm. I usually take my pill around 7 or 8 in the morning before class. What's the risk of me getting pregnant? Do I need emergency contraception?

Hi CorvusWolf,
What kind of pill are you on?

Generally, insofar as any of the regular combination pills go, (as in, it contains both estogen and progestin)since the pill was still taken on its appointed day, you are protected.

For more detailed information on this method of birth control, see our page on it here here: http://www.scarleteen.com/birth_control_bingo_the_combination_pill

If the page does not answer another specific question and/or you are on a different form of birth control, feel free to follow-up here!

I forgot to mention... It's a 28 day pack, with the last week as my placebo week.

Just realized my other post went through, even though I got an error when I sent it in, whoops.

Tri-sprintec is a combination pill, so see my post above.
