BTDT- BC question

Ladies, I have a little dilemma.
Since Fede was 2 months I've been taking the minipill as BC. Since I was so paranoid we also used condoms most of the times.
Well, last wednesday I finished my last pack of BC and had to buy another one. Well, it was a very busy day, and I totally forgot. And next day too, and again on saturday! Last night was sunday, and it was hard to find an open drugstore.
So now I've been 4 days in a row without the pill, and I'm wondering if I should start again, or just drop it. What would you do?
(We are fine with the risk of condoms. I feel like I'm out of the "danger zone". That is, if by any chance a condom failed and I get pregnant, I would be mnostly allright with it.)

Personally I would just go with condoms. I've heard of so many problems with the mini pill, and honestly hormonal bc is just not for me. DH and I used condoms for years with no issues, so I don't think the risks are really that high when used correctly. Of course, if you are the type of people that will forget them often, or that don't really like condoms, then they're probably not for you. You just have to weigh the pro's and cons I guess. Good luck!

If you are both OK w/ just using condoms then I would just go that route.

I am currently about to miscarry from getting pregnant while on the pill. We were not using any back up condoms this month and I got pregnant. Needless to say we are also just going to stick with condoms from here on out. After the next baby (which we will be trying for after January) we will get on Mirena. No more pills for me.
