I'm confused... please help, I have been relying on emergency pills for a long time.

Dear Ponee,

If you have forgotten to take your pill on a particular day you should take it as soon as you remember and then take the next pill at the usual time i.e. you will take 2 pills the next day. As your missed pill was in the later phase of the cycle, the risk of pregnancy is less and it is not really necessary to take the emergency contraceptive pill.
