Hi!
If you were my patient, I would have to admit that I don't fully understand your question, but here is my interpretation:  You started the pill, but discontinued it, and then had a period.  You then had intercourse and now are wondering whether to take emergency contraception.  IF I understood you correctly, then I would say--yes taking Plan B or Next Choice would be a good idea to prevent an unplanned pregnancy.  IF you have been taking the birth control pills continuously as directed for the past 3 months, then you should not need emergency contraception too.
Good luck!
Dr B
