Missing Your Birth Control Pills: Basic Guide

Birth control pills need to be used faithfully.But we are human right? We can't always be in the same place, at the same time, every day. So skipped pills are common and when you take pills you need to know what to do. If you are on most types of birth control and you have missed a pill, then you can just take another with your regular pill the next day and you are protected! If you manage to miss two days before you realize, play catch up, take two a day for the next two days. However, with some of the newest formulations the hormone levels vary from day to day, and the instructions on what to do vary depending on which pill you missed..For those who aren't sure then you need to use back up, and ideally check with your gyno, get on line with the individual pill company, and if you notice this becoming a habit you need to think about your lifestyle and what will be the best contraception for you!
