I've been on birth control for almost a year if not more. I missed one of my pills but took it the next morning. The night I forgot I had sex and he came inside of me. I'm supposed to get my period today but it didn't come this morning.. Should I concerned or am I just freaking myself out?
Hi! If you were my patient, I would advise you to do a pregnancy test. Most pregnancy tests will become positive at about the same time that you miss your period, so you should be able to find out soon. Usually if you just miss one pill, and make it up promptly the next day, you should be OK. If you are ever in doubt, use condoms or anothe backup method. Good luck! Dr B
