Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had missed 1 pill and followed the missed-pill-protocol, you might remain protected. However, if this was your first pill use and you have been sexually active without protection during first 2-3 weeks of getting started on the pill pack, you will not have the protection. Wait and watch for your periods/withdrawal bleeding. You can consider getting started on the next scheduled pill pack as usual if chances of pregnancy are ruled out. If you notice abnormal bleeding, or appearance of new symptoms, or suspect pregnancy chances, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle. Stop the use of hormonal contraceptive if pregnancy is suspected, or if pregnancy gets confirmed.
Take care.
