Simply Letting It Go When You Forget
If you do forget your pill, it's important that you make up for it as soon as possible. "If you forget your pill one day, take it as soon as you remember. If you don't remember until the next day, take two pills then," Dr. Landa said. "If you forget to take your pills for two days, then take two pills when you remember, and two pills the next day as well." Still, this may increase the likelihood of getting pregnant, so use backup contraception, like a condom.
