Girlfriend missed her pill before her period. Plan B necessary?

My girlfriend forgot to take her last birth control pill before her period and we had unprotected sex after her period was finished. Do we need to get the Plan B pill?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Usually first 8 to 9 days of a cycle are infertile so there is less chance that she can be impregnated. But till 7 days of birth control complete use od condom would be wise.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
