June: In such a situation, a couple typically can just add condoms for May, and not have to think about these things. June will be the second month back on birth control pills, and if no missed pills, June will be fine and safe. Condoms work great, and a couple should always have some on hand. Condoms are versatile. Good for back up use, etc... No worries.
