    You can take the morning after pill, however, it isn't really necessary unless you've skipped too many pills. Read the insert that came with your pills. It will tell you when you must use a back-up method of birth control or emergency contraception.

    the morning-after pill is actually a series of high estrogen-dosed birth control pills that you take back to back. so it should be fine.

    why would you need to if you've taken your BCP properly?

    Close, but not quite. The morning after pill is progestin, not estrogen. There used to be a brand of morning after pill that had estrogen in it, but the only one currently on the market is Plan B, which contains only progestin.

    Also, while SOME combined birth control pills can be used as emergency contraception ("morning after pill"), not all can. Only pills containing the progestin Levonorgestrel can be used.

    That said, as GLSheridan mentioned, there is no need for taking the M.A.P unless pills have been missed so as to lower effectiveness.

    i am on the pill and one time i thought i might need the emergency pill. the doctor wouldnt give it to me because he said its just a stronger dose of the pill im already taking and would probably make me sick therefore throwing it up and it wouldnt work anyways.
