Toria agony auntWhen you miss a pill you need to take it as soon as you realise and not have unprotected sex for a week afterwards therefore you were not protected at all when you had sex, if it is within the 72 hours you can take the morning after pill if not you really need to see your doctor and take a pregnancy test the sooner the better obviously within the time limit a pregnancy test advices you to do so.

Hope this helped :o)

camille agony auntDon't take 2, that won't work...... Yes you could be pregnant. A better option would have been to take a morning after pill after you'd had sex, but you may be too late for that now, depending on how long ago it happened. Use additional contraception (condom) for at least 7 days after too. There should be a leaflet with your pill with all this inforamtion and what to do if you miss a pill, but having had sex, I guess all you can do is cross your fingers and hope you're not unlucky!

Donnah agony auntYup! Oh heck, you could get pregnant even if you took it. Nothing is 100% but we try to do our best. My mother had a tubaligation and still got pregnant!

Take 2 and pray! At least it's only one day. Most times your on the safe side but I know people who have gotten pregnant on one missed pill.

Keep your pills where you do something on a daily basis. Toothbrush, cosmetic bag. Don't forget it!

Are you and your partner prepared to be parents? If not, consider the shot which is good for three months. There are other options.

Good Luck to you!
