If you take oral contraceptive pills and you miss 2 or more pills in a row, please remember that you are no longer protected from pregnancy. You should continue taking the pills, but you need to use a condom until that pack of pills is finished. Of course, if you are not sure of your or your partner's HIV or STI (sexually transmitted infection) status, then you should always use a condom.
