My boyfriend and I broke up about a month ago and I decided to stay on the pill. I take it every day between 4 and 6pm depending on my work schedule (i know its supposed to be the same time every day). I have 4 pills left before I start the placebo pills to have my period. My problem is sometime within the past 4 or 5 days I completely forgot to take one. I know you're supposed to take it as soon as you remember, but I didn't realize it until it was time to take it the next day. I ended up having sex last night (without a condom) and I was wondering if I should worry and shell out the cash for the Plan B pill, since I skipped a day of the pill or if I should be fine? I wonder because during your week of placebo pills you're still protected, so are you still protected if you skip a day and continue where you left off in your pack the next day?
