What should I do if I miss a pill?
updated over 3 years ago

Take your next pill as soon as you remember, and use a back-up method for 7 days afterward (unless it was a 4th week reminder pill, in which case you can just throw out the reminder pill for that day and get back on schedule).

If you’ve had sex since you got off schedule and that’s within the last five days, you might want to take emergency contraception just in case.
