The consequences of forgetting vary depending on the kind of birth control pill, the time in your cycle when you forgot, and the gap between the time you took your last pill and when you had sex. It’s complicated, eh?
Briefly, if you forgot to take one or more pills, call Info-Santé (811). The nurse will help you figure things out by evaluating the situation and its risks with you, based on your answers. You can also consult your pharmacist or the nurse at your school or CLSC for support. But don’t wait: the faster you react, the better! Of course, if you feel comfortable doing so, talk about it with your parents or friends… or contact us!
