MIssing Birth Contro: It is unlikely for pregnancy to occur here. She did almost everything right.
In the future anyone who drops a birth control pill should just take the next one in the pak. If one misses a birth control pill they should take two pills the next day.
Using Plan B is very effective in this situation to also help.
