Had unprotected sex. Missed birth control pill. When can I restart my pills? Pregnancy chances?

Hi I missed 2 active blue pills in my third week and i took the 2 pills today. Should i finish the remaining 2 pill tomorrow? Also, I had sex today and the condom broke. Would I be able to take plan B since I m not protected? How would that affect me while I m on birth control? What do I do afterwards? Would I get my period? Would I have to restart my birth control cycle all over again?

I have gone through your query and understood the concern. If you consumed the missed pills immediately after their due date, your cycle is protected. Yet, if you are worried, you can take the emergency protection; else, continue with the rest of the oral pills as per schedule. Please remember that the emergency pill contains high hormone dose and tends to disrupt the hormone milieu thus giving rise to breakthrough bleeding and a delay in the next menstrual period by a week or two. If you become overdue by ten days, please see a specialist for further help. Please wait for your next period to plan further contraception. Hope this helps.
