Each method of birth control comes with risks to your health. What are the general problems you could encounter?...
I've been taking birth control consistently for about 6 years now. I usually start my first row of pills on Monday but today when I went to take my pill I noticed I only had one pill left when I should have had two (7 pills from Monday-Sunday). So three things could've happend.
1. I accidentally started my pills a day earlier
2. I accidentally took two pills in one day
3. One of my pills somehow got lost
I know for a fact I've taken a pill every day this week so I haven't actually missed a pill. I had sex without a condom last night and usually I wouldn't be worried but since I've messed up taking my first week of pills somehow I am now worried that I could become pregnant. Is this likely and should I be worried?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. In all three scenarios, none of them is to worry about, you are still safe from pregnancy and no chance of it.

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
