Welcome to ehealthforum,
Using back-up protection while having intercourse will give you additional protection from pregnancy. If you have been regular in taking the birth control pills at scheduled time (and have not missed taking any pills), you should also have the protection. Continue to take the birth control pills at the scheduled time daily. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further clarification.
