On Yasmin pills. Took 2 pills on day 7 since forgot the previous day. Had sex. Protected?

Hi, I am currently using Yasmin birth control and have been for about 3 years. I forgot to take day 6 of my pill pack, so took 2 pills on day 7. I always take my pill at the same time everyday, and previously I took 2 pill packs back to back due to a holiday. I had sex on day 4 and day 7 am I still protected. What do I do?? Please help!

thank you for your query.

If you have missed a pill,you can go ahead and take 2 pills next day. If you forget to take your pills for 2 days, take 2 pills the day you remember and 2 pills the next day. You will then be back on schedule. If you miss more than 2 birth control pills, take one pill daily until Sunday and then start a new pack or discard the rest of the pill pack and start over with a new pack that same day.

so yes,you are protected.
but in future do use some other form of protection eg.condom when you miss the pill.

thank you,
wishing you good health
