The "next day" or "morning after" pill is a medication that can be taken within 24 hours of unprotected intercourse to prevent pregnancy. If you had sex without protection or the condom broke, you can take the morning after pill to prevent pregnancy from occurring. At this time, some states require that you have a prescription from your doctor or gynecologist, and some states will allow pills to be purchased directly from the pharmacy counter.

The morning after pill should be used as a last resort only. Measures should be taken ahead of time to prevent pregnancy whenever possible. Not only are morning after pills expensive, but they make you very sick when you take them.

I've done it before, and it's okay. :-)

What happens if you lose one birth control pill?

If you lose a birth control pill, take the next day's pill, and so on, until you finish the pack. You'll start your next pack a day early, as it's important not to go more than seven days without taking an active pill. In other words, if you started this last pack with the lost pill on Sunday, you'll start the next pack on Saturday, and that will be your new start day.

If you took the pill but late its absolutely okay. If you missed a day then make sure you take two the next day but dont have sex if you didnt take the pill.

If i miss a pill and get back on track does the pill stop working?

If you miss a pill take 2 the next day. One pill doesn't matter that much in a long run. It is when you miss several days that you have a problem. Start taking your pill the same time every day and you are less likely to forget.

What do you do if you missed your first pill of your new packet?

Take two the next day. Do not take two. Just take one. Exceeding the limit per day is very harmful and the limit is one pill a day.

Is it possible to miss one pill and have your period return the next day?

Yes, depending on the sensitivity of the pill, (the amount of hormones in each pill) and other contributing factors like where you are in your cycle, it is possible.
