Missed Birth Control Pill and had Sex

Unfortunately, after sex today my partner mentioned that she had forgotten to take her birth control pill this morning. I had ejaculated inside her and I'm concerned about what could possibly happen.

Is there an increased chance of pregnancy if you miss a pill? Would doubling up on the pill be effective? If not, would Plan B be a good option?

You have a twelve hour window in which to take the pill. Yes, there is an increased chance of pregnancy if you miss a pill but the increase is very, very slight. Honestly,if she doubles her next p?ll she should be fine. Plan B is not really necessary.

Personally, I'd be concerned about why she told you AFTER having sex when she could have told you before and given you the option of using a condom ...
There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
