Hi Everyone, need some advice to help me stop worrying! I had my period from the 3rd of January till the 6/7th. There was very little flow (hardly any) on Friday the 7th. I had started my next packet of my pill on the 6th and took it on time. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on Saturday gone the 10th and he finished inside me. I took my pill correctly from Saturday 6th till Monday 10th and I missed last nights pill which was the 11th. I took both pills (yesterday’s & today’s pill) tonight at 7:35pm today. I normally take it at 7pm every night. I took my pill correctly before my period and and didn’t miss any. On my period calendar it says my ovulation was 10 days away when I had unprotected sex which will be Monday the 17th of January. It is 5 days from today….could I become pregnant if I missed a pill 3 days after Sex? I was protected at the time of sex. Please help me from overthinking! 💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💊💤💤💤💤💤💤💤💊💊💊💊💊💊💊 Brand: Yasmin

You no longer ovulate on the pill, so you don’t have a cycle or a real period, it’s a withdrawal bleed. Your withdrawal bleeds can change at any point. On the combined pill you’re allowed to miss one pill and remain protected and you followed the instructions correctly for a missed pill. You’re all good!

You do not ovulate on the pill when you’re taking it correctly so ignore your tracking app. You can miss a pill anywhere in your pack and remain protected on a combined pill. You’re still protected and not at risk of pregnancy.

This is your manual of your pills. If you forget to take it If you miss a tablet and take the missed tablet within 12 hours of missing it, you should still be protected against pregnancy. If you are more than 12 hours late follow these detailed instructions: For Yasmin to be most effective, light yellow active tablets need to be taken uninterrupted for 7 days. If you have been taking the light yellow active tablets for 7 uninterrupted days and miss a light yellow active tablet, take the missed tablet as soon as you remember, then go back to taking your medicine as you would normally, even if this means taking two tablets in one day. You will not need to use additional barrier contraceptive precautions. The chance of pregnancy after missing a light yellow active tablet depends on when you missed 2 the tablet. There is a higher risk of becoming pregnant if you miss a tablet at the beginning or end of a pack. If after taking your missed tablet you have less than 7 days of light yellow active tablets left in a row, you should finish the active tablets in your pack but skip the white placebo tablets and start a new pack. This is the best way to maintain contraceptive protection. However, you may not have a period until the end of the light yellow active tablets of the second pack. You may have spotting or breakthrough bleeding on tablet-taking days. If you have been taking the light yellow active tablets for less than 7 days and miss a light yellow active tablet, take the missed tablet as soon as you remember, then go back to taking your medicine as you would normally, even if this means taking two tablets in one day. In addition, you must also use additional barrier contraceptive precautions (e.g. condoms or a diaphragm) for the next 7 days. If you have had sexual intercourse during that time, there is a possibility of pregnancy and you may need emergency contraception. If you forget to take more than one light yellow active tablet, seek advice from your doctor or pharmacist about what to do. If you have had sexual intercourse in the week before missing your tablets, there is a possibility of becoming pregnant. If you miss a white inactive tablet, you do not need to take them later because they do not contain any active ingredients. However, it is important that you discard the missed white tablet(s) to make sure that the number of days between taking active tablets is not increased as this would increase the risk of pregnancy. Continue with the next tablet at the usual time. Please see the diagram at the end of this leaflet for “Summary of advice if you missed a light yellow active tablet more than 12 hours ago”.

@nikeyxo @bluerose9 @Anoooony Thank you for the comments, I did read the pamphlet for my pill but still felt I needed clarification and advice from others who it has happened to. I did miss my 6th pill of a new pack so therefore thought I could be at risk. I understand that I would be at risk if I had unprotected sex tonight or in the next 7 days as I missed the pill last night. When I had unprotected sex I was covered at the time so I should be good. Thank you for the help

If you have had sexual intercourse in the week before missing your tablets, there is a possibility of becoming pregnant. For me, you are not protected. And your sex is risky. You will have to take a pregnancy test 21 days after your last sexual intercourse.

@aNoooony It’s not necessary for this user to use extra contraception for the next 7 days because they are still protected. Read the screenshot that @nikeyxo provided. On a combined pill, you can miss one pill in your pack and still remain protected. This user is still protected.

@newgirl96 so the package insert of your pill says you are not protected but the NHS site says the opposite. It's up to you to figure out what's right. 😘

@newgirl96 Don’t listen to this other user… @niKeyxo And @bLuerose9 Have provided you with the correct information from the NHS website. A lot of pamphlets contain outdated and conflicting information so it’s recommended to use the NHS website. You’re still protected, nothing to worry about 👍🏻

Thank you. I am going to go to my pharmacy tomorrow as I live in Ireland but I’m sure the HSE and NHS is the same information.
