If you were just late and took it later that day, I'd say wait that day and the next. Then you should be OK. If you didn't take it until the next day, take that one in the morning and the one you are supposed to take for that day at night. Then you should wait the day you missed the pill, the day you took two pills, the next two days of taking them correctly and then I'd say it's safe to have intercourse again. Better extra safe than pregnant.

If you miss 1 "active" pill:

1. Take it as soon as you remember. Take the next pill at your regular time. This means you take 2 pills in one day. 2. You do not have to use a back-up method of Birth Control if you have sex.

If you miss 2 "active" pills:

1. Take 2 pills on the day you remember and 2 pills the next day. 2. Then take 1 pill a day until you finish the pack. 3. You may become pregnant if you have sex in the 7 days after you miss pills. 4. You must use a back-up method of birth control such as condoms, spermicides or a contraceptive sponge for those 7 days.

If you miss 2 "active" pills in a row in week 3:

1. If you are a Day 1 starter, throw out the rest of the pack and start a new pack that same day. 2. If you are a Sunday starter, keep taking 1 pill every day until Sunday. On Sunday, throw out the rest of the pack and start a new pack of pills that same day. 3. You may not have your period this month but this is expected. However, if you miss your period two months in a row, call your doctor or health care provider because you might be pregnant. 4. You may become pregnant if you have sex in the 7 days after you miss pills. You must use another form of birth control such as condoms, spermicides or a contraceptive sponge as a backup for those 7 days.

If you miss 3 or more "active pills in a row (during the first 3 weeks):

1. If you are a Day 1 starter, throw out the rest of the pill pack and start a new pack that same day. 2. If you are a Sunday starter, keep taking 1 pill every day until Sunday. On Sunday, throw out the rest of the pack and start a new pack of pills that same day. 3. You may not have a period this month but this is expected. However, if you miss your period 2 months in a row, call your doctor or healthcare provider because you might be pregnant. 4. You may become pregnant if you have sex in the 7 days after you miss pills. You must use a back-up method of birth control such as condoms, spermicides or a contraceptive sponge for those 7 days.
