Birth control pills

I went on a trip and forgot my bc pills at home. I missed almost 2 weeks of pills. I just got a new pack and am going to start it tonight. How long until its safe to have sex without using another method of bc?

  • Depends on what you take but probably a week.

  • Best to ask your pharmacist rather than guess.

  • I think it's more like a month but ask your doc or pharmacist to know for sure. also use a backup method just in case.
