What to do if you miss a birth control pill.
It's Christmas Eve, the kids got out of school early, your mother-in-law called 1,000 times to make sure you're bringing dessert to Christmas dinner, and your husband seems to think that it's OK to call on his way home from work to inform you he needs a gift for HIS sister. In all this, you realize that you totally forgot to take your pill this morning. Is it okay to double up? Honestly, we love our kids, but the thought of a new baby in '08 (for most of us) is not enjoyable. We looked to Beverly Hills OB/GYN Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz for advice.
