Missed Pill after sex
I take Melodene reguraly every night before I go to sleep but I forgot to take it for 2 nights AFTER sex but took it immediately once I remembered. Is there the possibility of pregnancy as I've heard sperm can survive for upto 3 days in the body? Should I take emergency contraception?

If you missed two nights completely, you are not protected. You should take emergency contraception if it is within 72 hours, and also use extra protection for the next two weeks.
