Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you
User :   i am on tri-sprintec birth control and have been for several months
User :   i missed the first pill of my most recent pack because i didn't have it. As soon as I could get a new prescription i took the missed pill
User :   i have had sex since that time, should I be worried about being pregnant
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
if you miss only the first dose
Doctor :  
there is not much to worry
Doctor :  
as you were regular previously
User :   yes i was regular prior to and after that one missed dose
Doctor :  
if you had missed more than 3 days at a stretch then it is to be worried
User :   and the information with the birth control says if only one dose is missed than no extra contraceptive is needed
Doctor :   yes thats correct
User :   is there any way to detect pregnancy before the first period is missed?
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
if you have missed only one pill then be tension free
User :   thank you very much
Doctor :
