hello, i woke up this morning to find out i was spotting a little. i couldn't figure out why, till i saw my birth control pack, i was in the middle of them but hadn't taken one since saturday...Ive had sex twice since then and i'm not sure what to do. I don't have any extra money for Plan B, my boyfriend does but he is at work. Should i just take my missed pills and continue on? or should i throw out the pack and buy new ones?

please help!! i know it was a stupid mistake, i really do.

It's generally recommended when you miss 2 days in a row

Since you've missed 3, some doctors would recommend discontinuing the pills altogether for the remainder of this cycle and using some other type of back up in the meantime.

oh ok, then waiting for my period to end and start a new pack? that makes sense
