I am 16 and taking Yasmin 28. I missed one pill Monday on 2nd week and one pill Wednesday on 3rd week. Both times I took the missed pill as soon as I remembered. Do I need to use another form of contraception over the next 7 days ?
If during both days you had taken the pill within 12 hours of your usual timing then it is fine.But if was more than that then risk is there so it is better to use condom for protection against pregnancy.Also if you have started the pills this month itself then consider using the protection as it takes time for the body to get adjusted to the hormonal changes and missing them can be a risk.
