Having to take morning after pill, please suggest me

I am currently on birth control, i take my birth control at 7pm. This is my second day on birth control. So i ended up having to take a emergeny morning after pill at 12:05pm and have to take the next pill at 12:05am(12 hours later). If i am taking my birth control at 7 and have to take the second morning after pill at 12am. Do i still take my normal birth control at 7:00pm?

Hi.. Morning after pill are any way effective in preventing pregnancy due to any sexual intercourse 72 hours earlier (though failure rate is known).. Hence technically speaking the birth control pill is not going to do any more than what the morning after pill will... So I think you may as well not take your normal contraceptive pill.. Avoid unprotected sex for a this month and then start of the usual contraceptive pill fresh from the next month onwards.. Or alternatively you may follow what is followed when a pill is missed from the 3day or 4th day onwards.. Inorder to prevent menstrual irregularities, I would feel the former would be better than the later... Discuss with your doctors..
