    Suggest oral contraception dosage to avoid pregnancy

Posted on Mon, 9 Feb 2015 in Pregnancy
Question: I had accidentally missed 2 pills in week 3 of my birth control pack. I took 2 the next day I noticed and then took the 3rd one at my normal time and continued taking them for 2 days until Sunday when I started the inactive pills. On tues morning I had unprotected sex and started what seemed to be my period after with bleeding for 2 days. I took plan b on Thursday morning that week anyways. After plan b I continued to take the inactive pills (Thursday- Saturday) and started the active ones on Sunday . Do I need another form of birth control for this week?

No need of any other form of birth control

I read your query and I understand your concerns about possibility of pregnancy.

Following is my reply:

1) You have missed pills during end of your cycle meaning you are in safe period and there is no chance of pregnancy.

2) You dont need any other form of birth control this week as i see no chance of pregnancy.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.
