Hi I forgot to take my contraceptive pills and I am worried. Do I need to swallow the two pills I did not take? How about sexual intercourse? Will I still be safe or should I take some more precautions in order not to fall pregnant. Thanks for answering as soon as possible

Thank you
Hello
If you have only missed the one pill, then take it and carry on taking your pills as prescribed. Which pill on you one actually? The combined contraceptive pill means that you will be safe, but if you take the progesterone only pill then you are at risk. In that case take the morning after emergency pill from the pharmacy. Use condoms for one week and you will not get pregnant. Take care and good luck

Here is a link to a family planning page in UK for more information.
