Pil forgot in the second week of your comic

If you forgot the pill in your second week of the comic, there is nothing to worry about. Take the pill as yet, even if this means that you now take 2 pills at the same time.
In this week, the chance that you will become pregnant is not great because the pill can simply do its job. However, if you have forgotten more pills in this week, use another contraceptive such as a condom for the next 7 days. Make sure you consistently take the pill again in those 7 days. After this you can have sex without a condom again.
