I accidently took my...

I accidently took my birth control pill for Wednesday and Thursday together on Wednesday. I then waited a day, letting Thursday pass without taking a pill to get back on track. I then continued taking my pills for Friday and Saturday as scheduled. I then had unprotected sex Saturday night. I wanted to know if I'm at risk for pregnancy or will I be okay even through I skipped a day to get back on track from accidently taking two.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?

Yes it is, and my health is good just a little over weight.

Hello,

it depends on the time of your cycle. If you are in the first week, there would be a risk for pregnancy and you should take the morning-after pill. 2nd week would be no problem and you could go on taking the pill as usual. If it´s the 3rd week, I would recommend to skip the break, then protection will persist.

Kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

Please don´t forget to honour my work with a kindly rating (3-5 stars).

Thanks a lot, all the best for you.

I will be in the 3 week tomorrow (Sunday), when you say skip the break, do you mean skip the pills for the period and just continue a new pack (skipping my period for this month).

ok, so it was in the 2nd week that you skipped the pill. Then there´s definitely no risk for pregnancy at all and you can go on using your pill as usual.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
