  • As long as you took it as soon as you realized it, it is only about 2% less effective but you should protect for the next week.

  • you definately could. if this just happened, it is always an option to take Plan B . . . you don't need a prescription, just go to a pharmacy tonight and get it. It is basically a mega-dose of birth control.

  • It could happen, but as long as you took it as soon as you remembered, and picked up with the next pill and continued properly, you're probably fine. The risk missing one pill isn't very high. If you miss 2, you need to use a backup method until you're a week into the next pack.
