If you forget to take your birth control pill, just take it as soon as you remember. Nothing actually happens, unless you don't take for a few days. But if you take it as soon a you remember it is okay although its not on the time you were going totake it.

Not much so long as you don't engage in any sexual intercourse.

You should take your birth control every day and at the same time each day. Taking your birth control this way will keep you 99.9% protected from pregnancy. Also, you should take your birth control at a time that is convenient for you, so that you do not forget to take your pills. Morning time is the best time to take your birth control. For example, take your birth control every day at 6 AM. Here is a tip, you should have your alarm already set for a time and have your pills by your bedside so that you do not forget.

You can take a birth control pill before, with, or after a sleeping pill. The order doesn't matter unless the sleeping pill makes you forget your birth control.

If you forget to take your birth control pill, don't take two to make up for the one you forgot! Start fresh the next day. Try to take them at the same time everyday also. Your less likely to spot bleed or start spotting when you forget your pill.

Birth control pills are female hormones, a man should not take them.

You should go get Plan B, just in case. But if it's after 72 hours, then the pill wont be affective.

If you forgot to take your normal birth control pill then this is a good time to take the MAP if you had unprotected sex.

The effectiveness is the same whether you take the birth control pill with food or on any empty stomach, but some women have nausea if they don't take the birth control pill with food.

Nothing. Those pills are just there to keep you on track. You don't even have to take them.

You can take birth control when you have herpes.

Yes there is no documented interaction between the two until now. But ask your doctor just to be sure and it is recommended to take the birth control first because after the Ambien you might get drowsy and forget.

Birth control pills are hormones and will not help you better if you take 4 at one time. You need to take a pill each day for them to work otherwise you are not protected.

if you have sex and don't take birth control, you may get pregnant. Birth control reduces the risk of pregnancy.

You can get the birth control injection in the same arm every time for years. There is no medical need to rotate injection sites.

That is very risky. If you forget the pill a single day, the risk is probably fairly small; but anything above that will greatly increase your risk of an unwanted pregnancy.

If u take your birth control late there is a chance of getting pregnant if you're on the pill I was on seasonique for two years and took my pills on time and still got pregnant.

If you take more than one birth control pill, it's fine...that just means that your catching up from missing it the day before.

If you took your birth control correctly and didn't have withdrawal bleeding during the pill-free week, there is probably no need for concern. Hormonal birth control can lighten the amount of flow to the point that there is no bleeding. If you did not take your birth control correctly, or are experiencing symptoms of pregnancy, take a test to make sure.
