As they always say..: "Don't do this again." Birth control is something to do BEFORE having sex, or during sex, not afterwards.

I accidently took my saturday and sunday birth control pill yesterday. Now that it's sunday do I skip a pill or take mondays?

Take monday's: You will end up running out of pills a day early with this pill pack, and thus - you will probably get your period a day earlier than you normally would, but - it is better than missing a day. (the 'extra' dose you got yesterday won't 'carry over' to tomorrow). ...Read more

Take at bedtime: Nausea can happen for 5-10% of women in the first cycle. Taking at bedtime may help. It's important to take the same time every day and not miss. Typically nausea improves after the first 1-3 months. If your pill causes vomiting, call your doctor to ask about a different pill. There are many different pills with different doses or different hormone combinations. ...Read more

What happens if I forgot to take one birth control pill (micronor) two days after intercourse?

Take precautions: If you forgot to take the pill at any time, you should take the pill when you remember it and then take the next pill at the regularly scheduled time. Then, using a back-up method will provide security of not getting pregnant. Having forgot the pill 2 days after intercourse will probably not increase your chance of pregnancy. ...Read more
