Yes you can: If you miss 2 or more daily pills during a cycle you should either abstain from sex or use a back-up method of contraception (like a condom). Each type of pill is different, so check with your doctor to learn more. I would use an emergency contraceptive in your case. If taken within 3 days of unprotected sex, it reduces your chance of getting pregnant by 89%.
