Don't have sex.

You should consult the information that came with your pills. It will explain what to do if you have missed one or more pills, accurately for your brand of pills.

See the package insert for instructions, or call your doctor or pharmacist. It depends on what week you are in, etc.

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.

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.

Yes, you can take birth control during your period. You should take your birth control as directed regardless of bleeding.

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.

You should not take birth control while pregnant. Not at all.

No, you should not be pregnant when taking birth control. Birth control is meant to lower the risk of pregnancy.

An IUD is a choice of birth control.... I dont think you take antibiotics for birth control... you take antibiotics for infections.

NO, you should not take birth control if you think you may be pregnant. Instead, you should immediately see your doctor for proper diagnosis and guidance.

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

You only need to take a break when you want to get pregnant. There is no medical need to "take a break" from birth control.

User Avatar

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

No. It is only a problem if you forget to take your pill more than twice. Though if you have a problem remembering to take your pill you should think about taking another type of birth control.

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 had missed a pill or been late with a pill, causing you to take the morning after pill, then you should use a back up method of birth control for the next seven days. If you didn't forget a pill or take a pill late, then I'm not sure why you took the morning after pill, but the birth control pill will still be effective even though you took the morning after pill. The morning after pill doesn't make the birth control pill less effective.

You can take birth control when you have herpes.

If you want to get pregnant, you should stop using the birth control patch altogether.
